Yes, the </jabber> signifies the end of the stream/connection and the end
of the presence for that nickname, so the server signals that it's
offline.  It should only be for the nickname that was online in that

For one-shot messages and such, the sending app would most likely connect
and send the message without ever messing with any status/presence stuff,
and hence wouldn't go online/offline right away.
