Someone on #telepathy hit a this problem and made a nice debugging log:

I've poked a bit into this issue as i can reproduce it as well. When doing an
ugly hack to sofiasip so it sets my external ip in the Via header of the
register things work again. Unfortunately i don't know enough about SIP to
judge if this is a problem in sofiasip or in SIP server ekiga.net is using..

Perhaps the biggest disappointments were the ones you expected anyway.
