This is fixed in SVN version.

There is the following note in RFC3921, section 10.10:

Note: Presence notifications do not include presence subscriptions, only
presence information that is broadcasted to the user because the user is
currently subscribed to a contact's presence information. Thus this includes
presence stanzas with no 'type' attribute or of type='unavailable' only.

So it works according to spec.
