When built with NSS/NSPR 2.7.6 does almost completely fix the problem.
Some people still have initial connection failures but a retry or two is
usually enough to sort that out and get things working.

Unfortunately, when built with GnuTLS 2.7.6 is still broken for the
incorrectly configured servers because of a difference in how GnuTLS
handles presenting libpurple the certificate chain. A problem that was not
detected in the limited testing that was done before the release.

Fixes for both of those issues have been found and committed to mtn.
