I had a bugreport by a few of my users, that jabberd2 does not conform
to RFC 3921 5.1.3 and does not answer to presence probes on behalf of

During investigation I found that it does answer on presence probes
directed to user bare JID.

It doesn't though on probes directed to a full JID.

I personally think it's conformant to RFC3920 10.5.1 and RFC3921 saying that server MUST deliver directed (full JID) presences
to user unmodified.

It brings a question though why does google xmpp server send probes to
a full JID?
It's kinda useless. User can be online on some other resources than
the last time, may just changed it etc.
