See 6.5.2 of XEP-0060 (http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0060.html).
Typically when your client subscribes to something this is the order you take:
1. Make the subscription.
2. Ask the server for the items.
You must do it in that order. If you do not, items may be published between the two steps (and you would miss them). You can filter out duplicated by using the item @id attribute.
