I'm sorry to inform that I wrote a fix (included in ejabberd 2.0.4)
that broke other parts of subscription and roster.

So, ejabberd 2.0.4 solved this:
  Privacy rules can't stop subscription requests
but it introduced other problems, like
  Subscription request produces many authorization requests with some
clients and transports
and the problem that you explain now.

Both EJAB-890 and the problem that you explain are solved by ejabberd SVN r1998:

ejabberd 2.0.5 is planned for soon release, and will include just that:

You have several options:
* Keep 2.0.4 until 2.0.5 is released in the next days
* If you installed 2.0.4 from binary installer, install the previous
ejabberd 2.0.3, which didn't have this problem
* If you installed 2.0.4 from source package, apply the patch:
