Jabber: Preset topic not set upon join if topic author not in room

If a topic has been set in a Jabber conference, but the person who set that topic is not in the room, BitlBee does not set the topic:

23:13:00 <root> System message: From conference server: person has set the subject to: ...
23:13:12 -!- Topic for #foo: BitlBee groupchat: "foo@…". Please keep in mind that root-commands won't work here. Have fun!

Mentioned in IRC:

13:01:17 <bssteph> is it normal that currently (1.2) when i join a formerly-empty jabber conference room, the channel topic is a bitlbee message
13:04:38 <wilmer> And you don't get to see the pre-set topic because the person who set it is not in the room IIRC.
13:04:50 <wilmer> BitlBee can't handle messages from people who aren't in the room (anymore) very well.
