First of all, sorry for the very late response. Life been busy :-)

Anyways, I had a look at this today and it seems that when a client
connect, it includes the domain in the <stream:stream> element, e.g:
<stream:stream xmlns:stream="http://etherx.jabber.org/streams"
to="foo.com" version="1.0">

And during the SASL step, it only sends the username:
<auth xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-sasl" mechanism="PLAIN"

The base64 gets decoded into <NULL>foo<NULL>sfdsf. foo is the
username, sfdsf the password. This is true for both Adium and Psi.
When Vysper detects that the username does not contain a domain, it
appends the server domain, rather than the domain used by the client
in the <stream:stream> stanza.

I've tried and failed to interpret the spec on what the correct
behavior is. Bernd/Peter, as the world champs on reading the XMPP
specs, what's your thoughts on this?
