Ok. You are absolutely correct.
But...  only I received server`s LOGIN_REPLY packet server announces
my (online) status to anyone.
It`s continuing short time until INV.LIST will be sent.
It`s fact.
I resolving it so:
1) I sending LOGIN packet with INVISIBLE_STATUS.
2) Loggin in. (login, login_reply, contact_list, inv_list, login_x1,
3) Finally, I changing my status ONLINE.

I understand so it`s little strange, but it works correctly.
May be server tracks: my client isn`t mirabilis client?
