I'm using gaim 0.59.9 with encrypt 1.16 on Linux. I
tried to use the encrypted Yahoo Messenger connection.
Everything worked fine when I used the 1024 keys.
However such keys are not suitable for any serious
application now. When I tried to use longer keys (2048
or 4096) I got much worse results.
At 2048 bits - the key exchange worked, but there was
no possibility to exchange encrypted messages.
At 4096 bits - even the keys could not be exchanged.
When one of participants used the 1024 bit key, and the
another one - the 2048 bit key - the communication
There must be a problem with the length of packets used
for exchange of keys and/or encrypted messages.
