Hi there, no idea if you figured this out yet.
I dont use (any version of ) google talk (skype works just great :) ),
so these are only suggestions.

Windows version may be using uPNP to open up your firewall.

If i were you, i'd compare a tcpdump of both the google-talk (windows)
vs google-talk (kopete) and see the difference.

Or maybe google has locked down their servers so kopete cannot talk to
them anymore . 

Good luck,
