You are right, the shared roster doesn't send a name. That feature is
not implemented in ejabberd 1.1.x.

Where do you expect ejabberd to get the 'nick' when sending the shared
roster? The solution to your problem depends on your answer to my

Bug 311: mod_shared_roster aliases feature and bug fix

Bug 301: mod_shared_roster show rosteritems' nicknames

Shared roster should use user vcard nickname when available

Note that none of those patches is included in ejabberd 1.1.x or SVN.
