So what? It doesn't matter, they must have control over a huge share of the net to do forensics via time-based analysis to get a hint about you. The exitnode itself doesn't have a clue about the source, so your anonymity is 'secure', but your data isn't. But which data you submit is up to you (and it can compromise your anonymity). In terms of Jabber over Tor I'm using Gpg or OTR encryption - so anybody can have a look at it, but the don't know the decrypted content and the source of the transmission.
use UNIX or die :-)
