Jabber contacts often seem to be offline although they are actually online. That does not happen with other protocols such as ICQ or AIM.

I think this will have to wait until we rewrite the Jabber module, it's not the only problem we have with it.

it is not sure it is a client problem.

I think i have seen that with gaim sometimes too. But maybe it was a different problem, just to tell you :]

A possible explanation for this one is that the person was online with two clients and closed one of them. The Jabber module doesn't keep track of this very well yet.

Hmmm, I did manage to fix one place where this happened. I found out that my Jabber server sends presence information for at least one buddy (who is on the same server) before it even sends the buddy list. Possibly this is because BitlBee used to send an away state before requesting a buddy list. I swapped the two things, and now at least I can see that buddy online again.

But I'm afraid there are more causes of this problem, so I doubt if this one can be fixed already...

Of course I wasn't planning to fix anything in the Jabber code anymore, but let's consider this a little bit of practice to get familiar with the protocol. :-)

I think this problem is solved completely now in the new Jabber module. It keeps track of multiple resources, etc.
