MessageReceiptManager: Don't accept receipts from other resources

There were some problems with buggy clients leading to that some
messages were already marked as received, even though only another
resource of the used account has got the message.

Here is an example:
<message id="tH9OkRw"
    <n1:request xmlns:n1="urn:xmpp:receipts"/>

<message to=""
    <n1:received xmlns="urn:xmpp:receipts" id="tH9OkRw"/>

Here the other client "dino.dc02d539" sent an <received/> tag, although
it actually received this message over carbons. To avoid that we need to
ignore messages also from our bare JID.
