My default rule is ACCEPT anyways (I firewall at the router).

Not explicitly if they will get ACCEPTed by default, however you could put explicit rules at the tops of the chains and see if that makes a difference. If it does, then something already in the chain is blocking them.

Bleh, I hate firewall logging.

No argument from me on "Bleh", but sometimes it's the best/only way to figure out what's going on.

If you're testing from a specific PC, you can put in logging rules just for that PC's IP address. Otherwise just for destination port 5222 and source port 5222.
