Unfortunately, ejabberd never includes any text messages in stream
errors. xml-not-well-formed may be issued if it's indeed not
well-formed, bat also it is sent if a received stanza size exceeds
maximum stanza size (configured in a config file, parameter
max_stanza_size), and if you send XML stanza before an initial stream

In your case it's likely the stanza size bound.
