seized spoke nipple

i have a wheel that has been through a lot of abuse, winter grime, etc. one of the spoke nipples snapped and i need to replace it, but the nipple (the threaded part anyway) is seized onto the spoke. i've tried dropping triflow on either side but still can't seem to get it loose... i'm putting a lot of torque on the spoke and i'd really prefer not to damage it if i don't have to.

any suggestions?
