I got "UnicodeError: label empty or too long" on some messages in 
history. Actual crash happens in idn_to_ascii:

   File "/usr/local/share/gajim/src/common/helpers.py", line 125, in 
    File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/encodings/idna.py", line 73, in ToASCII
      raise UnicodeError("label empty or too long")

Patch attached fixing it (just be sure that label is not empty before 
calling idna.ToASCII()).
