I might have been lucky, it seems to run fine here (but read-only).

I use 1.1.2 (the newest stable, I think).

I'm not sure about that...
I don't know jabber internals, but the roster along with jids has (or can
have) "nicknames". If "nickname" is empty, psi displays jid.
What I'm looking for is setting those nicknames automatically.

I think it doesn't, at least not from vcard...
I'm 100% sure my users have pseudo set in vcards, but psi displays only
jid for them.

I don't add and delete them manually - it's done inside ejabberd, because
it's a shared roster.
