Bug: RFC2831 noncompliance - "charset=utf-8" in challenge REQUIRES "char

From: marty
Subject: Bug: RFC2831 noncompliance - "charset=utf-8" in challenge REQUIRES "charset=utf-8" in response

This bug was encountered using

   jabberd2 2.1.23 w/ GSASL 0.2.25

   Pidgin 2.4.0 (Cyrus-based SASL)

In summary, the issue is that jabberd2 (as a consequence of gsasl) indicates support for "charset=utf-8" in the challenge, and then consequently _requires_ that the response contain a "charset=utf-8" directive. This expectation is contrary to the RFC, which only states that the "charset=utf-8" directive in the challenge indicates server support for _optional_ utf-8 encoding of the response.

For details, please refer to the following:
