Generally, a client limits one chat window per JID.  How do you handle a 
'switch back' when there are two active resources?

  1) Open chat to user at host
  2) Receive message from user at host/res1
  3) Chat window magically changes its JID to user at host/res1
  4) Receive message from user at host/res2, causing a second chat window to 
  5) user at host/res1 goes unavailable
  6) chat window reverts JID to user at host.
  7) user at host/res2 goes unavailable
  8) EMM386.SYS error
