AIM suddenly won't connect using Empathy - "Network error"

Bug Description

Sometime last week, Empathy stopped being able to connect to my AIM account. I checked to see if Pidgin had the same problem too, and it did. I was able to fix the problem in Pidgin by unchecking "Use SSL" under Accounts>AIM>Edit Account>Advanced

There is no similar setting in Empathy that I can find that fixes this. Any ideas about why this suddenly occurred for both accounts at the same time, and how to fix it?

Using Empathy and Pidgin 2.6.5 on Karmic 64-bit.
