Facebook XMPP shows "has come online" notifications for online people

Description (last modified by computergeoffrey@…)

When you have a lot of online friends in your list (let's say 20) it is very disturbing to see so many people coming online. Facebook XMPP needs to check if a user is online before displaying notifications - now it displays notifications for people who were already online - which is weird! I suspect it has something to do with how Pidgin handles XMPP Facebook traffic - don't trust what they say (I mean, the XMPP traffic) about online people, but instead look in the list if they WERE already online and then decide whether to show a notification for that particular user.

Sorry if you don't understand what I mean. I've attached a screenshot for cleariness.

Edit: By the way, this can also be caused by an unstable internet connection. But it doesn't matter, the user always thought they were online. Instead, a message "you are offline" could be showed to the user.
