bitlbee ignores JIDs starting with '+'

After upgrading to bzr-198 bitlbee no longer handles jabber buddies with JID starting with a '+'. These JIDs represent a phone number for SMS sending transport on jabber server. And yes, it works fine with Psi.

These JIDs *are* present in the *.xml file but aren't shown after a /connect (not even 'blist all' mentions them). When I add such a JID, it works till /disconnect (and is present in .xml when saved).

"save, /disconnect, /connect, blist all" again ignores them.

Some of the previous bzr versions (196 perhaps?) didn't have such a problem.

bitlbee 1.1dev behaves exactly the same.

Hm, solved the problem. It was something else. That particular transport allowed only subscription="from" so it wasn't showed because new bitlbee shows just "both" or "to". A simple workaround is:

So it's solved.

This sounds more like a bug in the SMS service. subscription="from" means that the buddy will receive online/offline notifications about you, and I don't think that's the case.

You might want to report it there. If they intentionally did it like this, please tell me why, I'm curious. :-)
