Ah, I should have pointed out that this is the standard Windows client,
2.10.7, and so has Cyrus SASL enabled.  I don't have a Windows build
environment, so as a first step I would see if I can get the same thing
on linux - with SASL off and on.

If it didn't then the same problem would affect the pidgin servers.  It
must be an ejabberd issue specific to my server config.  That or the
pidgin client your are using is different I suppose.
