Google Talk file transfers fail

When trying to do a file transfer from the official Google Talk desktop client on Windows to a user with Empathy, will fail.
When a file transfer request is initiated, there will be a prompt from Empathy to accept the request, then I click Accept, then it will say "Waiting for the other participant's response" for about 20 seconds. While that message is displaying on Empathy, the Google Talk side will show a progress bar shifting left-to-right (not indicating any progress), and then fail. On the Empathy side it will say "Error while trying to transfer the file", and on the GTalk side it will say "(User) declined the offer".
I am able to do file transfer just fine between Pidgin and Empathy (as it's probably not using XEP-0234, or something).
I cannot determine the appropriate version of Telepathy-gabble installed, based upon the version options provided.
- In 'Help > About', the version of Empathy is 3.4.1
- The version of telepathy-gabble installed is '0.16.0-0ubuntu1', but there is no option for "0.16" in the 'version' selection, if correct.
- This is on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (64-bit)
