After investigating further, this appears to relate more to users to  
whom I have denied authorization to subscribe to my presence,  
regardless of the group I put them in. I use a group called "Ignore",  
as the one where I list users I wish to ignore, and have set up a  
suitable privacy list to achieve this.

However, if I deny authorization, as I want to with such users, the  
users are removed from my roster altogether, rendering my "Ignore"  
group ineffective. For Yahoo contacts at least, they return as "new" -  
Psi shows them under "Not in list" - and request authorization again.  
ICQ contacts (by far my biggest source of IDs to ignore) simply  

Under my previous setup, which finished on the same version of  
ejabberd, I think I could keep the "denied" contacts on my roster -  
but if I do need to authorize them now, would they in fact be blocked  
from seeing my presence?
