ICQ upgraded their protocol around the 11th February 2006.

This upgrade affects alternative clients like Trillian,
Miranda and so on and prevents them from sending and
receiveing messages.

My SIM is running on Kubuntu Linux(2.6.12-10-686) with
KDE 3.4.3 and Xorg X11R6. I encounterd occasionally
crashes when receiving messages from the original ICQ 5
client. Chatting with an already patched Miranda
(v0.4.0.3) is possible without problems.

I guess SIM is affected too.

To underline the problem here are some online ressources:

    I can acknowledge this Bug on SIM 0.3.9 under KDE 3.5.1.
    Other people can see me typping, but can not receive
    messages from me.
    On the other way, I can receive messages from them.
