Description

I haven't tried logging into Gmail jabber from barnowl in a while, but I just tried, and got:

[Error] Error in connect:

While I don't know for sure, I suspect that this is because I have two-factor authentication enabled on my Google account.

barnowl should solve this by either implementing 2FA, or allowing me to save my Google application-specific password, since application-specific passwords are designed to be entered exactly once.
