I am aware of this. Gtalk subscriptions were not working for a while but now
they work fine.

Here are the xml stanzas from the ejabberd log. I sent subscription
request to my own gtalk id from our component.
(Note that I have replaced the component host with im.domain.com in
the original stanzas)

Sent by ejabberd:

<presence xmlns="jabber:client"
          to="naikvin at gmail.com"
          from="user1 at im.domain.com"
  <nick xmlns="http://jabber.org/protocol/nick">Nick of User1</nick>

Received by ejabberd:

<presence type="subscribed" from="naikvin at gmail.com" to="user1 at im.domain.com
<presence from="naikvin at gmail.com/gmail.27EC5968" to="user1 at im.domain.com">
  <caps:c node="http://mail.google.com/xmpp/client/caps"
          ver="1.1" ext="pmuc-v1 sms-v1 vavinvite-v1"
  <x xmlns="vcard-temp:x:update">
<presence type="subscribe" from="naikvin at gmail.com" to="user1 at im.domain.com
