Hi everybody

There was a ticket for ejabberd regarding this topic, named
"When account is deleted, cancel presence subscription for all roster iems"

The ejabberd team has fixed that now:
"The subscriptions are canceled only if the authentication method is internal or odbc, and
the account is removed using a method implemented in ejabberd, like ejabberd Web Admin or
XEP-0077 In-Band Registration.

If the authentication method is anonymous, external, ldap or pam, then obviously ejabberd
does not notice that the account was removed, and the subscriptions are not canceled."
