Well, the only way that should be is if you logged in every time with the
same user account, so each connection(session) is all under your userid.
In that case the server will automatically notify yourself of any of your
own chnages.

If that's not the case, it's a bug, and grab a snapshot to email me from
the debug (-D) output of the jabbertransport when you send a status, and
I'll check it out.

Sure, these are often module-level issues.  The server doesn't really
contain much of the intelligence itself, most of it is offloaded to the
modules.  This is something I'll stick in the docs for building modules
though, since it's something all of them should be doing.
