it's possible to be offline but still appear in an XMPP group chat.

Unfortunately that's what I see all the time with the oracle beehive jabber
server I'm connecting to.
I'm seeing a mix : some users disapear and some don't (and stay @ status
offline). Should I report it as a bug ?

+1. Does pidgin have a voting system for new features ? :)
