Server must not return an error in such case, but route the message to
the active resource with the highest priority.

"Latching onto" a resource seems a good behaviour to me. If one starts
a new client for the same JID, without closing the already active one,
then it doesn't mean he want all conversations to be switched. But now
I see I could make this behaviour configurable in my client.
