I upgraded the Jabber server running jabber.earth.li from wpjabber to
ejabberd earlier today. wpjabber appears to have been unmaintained for
some time now and suffers from memory leaks that were causing stability
issues (trying to consume 4.5G+ of memory isn't considered good

Hopefully ejabberd will prove more stable; it's certainly being actively
developed and supports more of the recent Jabber standards than
wpjabber. Please do let me know if you see any issues.
