More LJ neepery

I want to try LJ Talk. I set up a Jabber account in iChat with davidlevine@livejournal.com as my login, my LJ password as the password, livejournal.com as the server, port 5222, and SSL turned off. When I try to connect, I get this error: "iChat was unable to login to the Jabber service because your screen name or password was incorrect."

Is there an LJ Talk community where I could be asking this question more productively?

ETA: Apparently the fix is to uncheck the "Use my machine name" checkbox under "Location:". Weird.
