If the server doesn’t support the roster, Gajim stays forever in connecting mode, even after receiving the error stanza.

What is Gajim supposed to do if you cannot have a roster? You cannot chat nor do anything that Gajim is supposed to be used for ...

You can chat if you know the JID of the other people; you can chat in MUC; you can do anything that don’t need presence subscription, and a very small part of XMPP needs that.

And at least Gajim shouldn’t stay forever in connecting state. The best thing to do would be to show a warning to the user, but being connected nevertheless.

What need to be changed in GUI: not possible to add contact to roster, rename contacts, what else?
