Greetings.

When I try to connect to Google Talk through Pidgin 2.7.3 (most recent in
APT repository), it doesn't show anything during 5 minutes. Then a generic
error message: *can't connect to username at gmail.com/*

I asked in your IRC channel, and the great user Moebelschatz thought about
adding *talk.google.com* as the connect server. It worked!

I suggest to include this in the official FAQ.
If you need more information, I pasted the corresponding debug information:

Keep up the good work!
