Google Talk and Pidgin

The last but one fix is to reconfigure my google talk account as a service on pidgin. I was having problems with this on my desktop. I had joined in a thread at Google's self help forum to which I had no reply and is now archived. Google have also published instructions, which I discussed the other week. So here's the key for me, my domain is now "googlemail.com". I don't know if I changed my relationship with google or if they changed their server configurations, the xmpp parameters I use are,

Basic Tab
protocol : xmpp
domain : googlemail.com
resource : Home
Advanced Tab
Require SSL/TLS, Force old port (5222), Allow plain text .... : All Unchecked
Connect Port: 5222
Connect Server: talk.google.com
File Transfer Proxies : proxy.jabber.org

although I have not yet tried a file transfer. So as far as I can tell the Google documentation is wrong about how you choose between gmail.com and googlemail.com.

Mine is the same excepting:
Domain: gmail.com
and 'USE GSSAPI for authentication' is checked under advanced.

Thank you, the key point is that I should be a gmail user according to the google "howto" page. I don't see the GSSAPI parameter.
