Hmm.  When I choose the "End private conversation" menu item, the
notification is definitely being sent.  It happens in otr-plugin.c line

/* Disconnect a context, sending a notice to the other side, if
 * appropriate. */
void otrg_plugin_disconnect(ConnContext *context)
    otrl_message_disconnect(otrg_plugin_userstate, &ui_ops, NULL,
            context->accountname, context->protocol, context->username,

[This is version 4.0, but I don't recall that being different in 3.x.]

Is this function not being called when you do it?
