[Telepathy] Memory leak in Telepathy/Empathy when connecting to Openfire XMPP

Myself and other users are finding that connecting to an Openfire XMPP server
with Empathy causes a memory leak in the server until it falls over.

Having upgraded to the pre-release Ubuntu with new Telepathy Tubes (the only person
connecting to our server at has), the symptoms started to occur. Not connecting
Empathy and they don't.

I have also filed a bug/comment against the server as I'm not sure who's fault
this is:http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/message/196905

There is some good discussion there with some users having looked further into causes.

With Telepathy going default in Ubuntu in the next couple of weeks this could
cause a major issue with people using Openfire servers.

Having reported it to Empathy/Gnome they've said it's not their issue and to try here!

Thanks for any help.
