If I go to Server Settings, after logging the account out of the server, (So I can change things) and use NO SSL and port 5222 and then log back in again I get this.
Uploaded with Skitch!
It's an Alert from the Keychain
If I "Continue " I get this...
Uploaded with Skitch!
Which is an Alert from Messages itself.
However at this point the Google Talk Account will login.
This is different from the last time I checked in iChat 5

success ! but before you change to 443 SSL on delate all preferences for ichat and messages at users/XXXX/library/Preferences... all plist (maybe one would work but I did delete all so not sure which one ;-) So this is what worked for me:
1. Using activity monitor
quit the meesages service
2. Delete all plist
3. Restart Computer
4 set up your account again with messages and put 443 ssl (on)
good luck :-)

I too had the the same problem, but i solved it by the followin method.
Step 1 : Enable 2 setp verification from gmail.com (https://www.google.com/settings/security)
Step 2 : Go to Manage in Connected applications and sites tab
Step 3 : Generate application specific password.
Step 4 : Now go to system preferences > Mail, Contacts & Calenders > Google tab (If already) > details> enter your username and then the application specific password
Step 5 : In iChat preferences , you'll now see the google acc with greyed out username and password and a single option of Enable this account.
Step 6 : Now it should work
