[JDEV] possible JabberIM bug

I'm getting similar behaviour when sending jabber:iq:oob IQ's.
Both WinJab and Jabber IM ignore the ID (in fact, Jabber IM replies with an
empty ID-field!).
It's screwing up my syncing too, can the programmers responsible please fix
these bugs or tell us what's going on?
