Right, currently we don't fragment large messages and make the
assumption "one IBB message == one tube message".
So, it's probably the server who reject too big IBB stanzas.
We could modify our IBB implementation to fragment big stanzas but that
would make the code sensibly more complicated. Furthermore I'm not sure
the server will allow us to send N MAX_SIZE stanzas consecutively. IBB
is really not designed to send big datas (XEP suggests 4096 bytes as max
A quick workaround could be to raise the allowed stanza max size in the
Oth, I can't see how to easily implement MUC D-Bus tubes without using
IBB, so maybe at some point we'll have to implement messages
