Google Talk and iChat SSL Error – 9843

So I was happily using iChat to connect to the AIM and Google Talk instant messaging networks (RE: my previous post on the subject). Then one day, I go to log in to Google Talk and I get a weird error message: SSL error 9843. I didn’t know if the problem was in iChat or with Google Talk. I downloaded and installed Addium and it connected flawlessly to Google Talk. I figured the problem must be in iChat. Just for grins, I Googled, “ichat stopped working with google talk” and pulled up this page at the O’Reilly Mac Devcenter. Turns out the problem is with Google Talk and Google is aware of the problem and working on a fix.
