I am sorry to resurrect this "solved" thread. Frankly, I am still
having trouble in this space.

Back in February, when the discussion took place, I was working with a
patched 2.0.1 and patched 2.0.3. I couldn't get 2.0.3 - patched or
vanilla - do behave as Badlop describes, which is:

When I play this game, user1 sees user2, but user2 does not see user1
in the SRG.

Back then, I assumed there was a problem with my setup, and moved on
with life. Eventually, I managed to get the @online@ patch working and
handling this scenario right.

Now, I also need to get conventional SRGs working well for the School
Server, and it isn't working correctly. I drop all my patches, install
a clean ejabberd 2.0.3, and still it doesnt' work... :-/

Any hints?
