Adding new MSN contacts not passing the "request to see status"

I’'m now using the latest beta (0.7) and have made a bit more progress interacting with MSN.

I have a jabber user and have registered an MSN account against my jabber ID. I can add an MSN user and the MSN user gets the request and gets added fine and we see each others status.

If another MSN user adds the MSN account I have registered with my Spark client I do not get the request. I have no idication at all that anyone is trying to add me to their list. This issue was present with 0.6b as well.

I don’‘t know if it’‘s related but I’'m getting lots of these errors in the log file since enabling the gateway plugin:

From my experience with MSN, if you’‘ve already permitted a person to have access to see you (ie, they’‘re in your “allow” list), then I don’‘t tend to get notifications that that person adds me. Typically it’'s just a “do you want to allow this person?” and since I already have . . . Do you see a different behavior in your actual MSN client?
