No, that's not bizarre at all. I don't know who admins that server and
what it's running. I've heard multiple reports of "A sees B, B doesn't
see A" on that server. The bugs in the shared roster are more readily
exposed in public jabber servers.
You shouldn't need a server for two machines: if the machines don't
see each other using link local presence (with no jabber server set)
then it's a Fedora problem.
If you really want to use a server, pick a different one from
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Community_Jabber_Servers and try again.
If possible, rather run 0.84.0* and use jabber.sugarlabs.org which
uses the new gadget component for presence.
