Some time ago I tried to add a user which was in the Licq-client-list to
Pidgin (which used the server list). At this time a new authorization
request was necessary. I guess the ICQ servers require this
authorization if you add a user to the server-list.

Hehe, yes. The changed-by-other-client reason was clear. But what if due
to another reason some users vanish? Hmm, probably ICQ clients now
always rely on the server list.
