Bug#327881: gossip: 'composing' message triggers new message notification

Package: gossip
Version: 0.9-1.1
Severity: normal

Since I upgraded to 0.9, Gossip has been firing off the 'new message' sound +
flashing notification area icon seemingly at random while talking to
another Jabber user. Today I found about LM_DEBUG=ALL and discovered that this
is what is triggering the event:

RECV [161]:
'<message xmlns='jabber:client' to='sam at robots.org.uk/home' from='XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX at jabber.org/Home'>
<x xmlns='jabber:x:event'>
*** Read: 161 chars
LM-PARSER: ATTRIBUTE: xmlns = jabber:client
LM-PARSER: ATTRIBUTE: to = sam at robots.org.uk/home
LM-PARSER: ATTRIBUTE: xmlns = jabber:x:event
LM-PARSER: Trying to close node: id
LM-PARSER: Trying to close node: composing
LM-PARSER: Trying to close node: x
LM-PARSER: Trying to close node: message
LM-PARSER: Have a new message
*** New message with type="message" from: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX at jabber.org/Home

I guess this is a 'user is typing' notification that Gossip is
mis-recognising as a message from that user.
