  I think the strangeness you are experiencing is because ICQ-transport keeps a list of registered jid's/UIN#s in memory, even after you have disconnected.. (at least older versions did this, I'm not positive if this is still true).  This is mostly to dissalow two jabber users from registering with the same UIN... but could possibly cause problems if you have deleted your account (without unregistering from ICQ-transport), and then attempt to re-register.. 

  I may be inaccurate, but that is how I understood it to work.. =]

  Hope this helps,
