Joining chat room in Spark returns "no response from the server"

I have two Group Chat rooms that were working fine up until (I believe) today. I don’t use them normally, but I haven’t had complaints from regular users until today. I can see the rooms listed in Spark, but connecting to them almost always returns “No response from the server”. After trying to join multiple times, I can sometimes get in eventually, but it always gives me this error.

I normally use Pidgin, and I don’t see any errors or experience any issues joining these rooms manually. The problem seems to be solely a Spark one.

I don’t see any corresponding error in OpenFire’s error/info/warning logs, and enabling the Debug log only produces LDAP lookup info, nothing related to group chat. Spark’s error.log records this:

Feb 10, 2010 10:32:16 AM org.jivesoftware.spark.util.log.Log error

Any help with this? The issue still exists, and I’m confused as to how to fix it.
