  No, I was more questioning that you where starting jserver with a different 
secret then was in the registry you pasted.. ;-P

  We're working on the documentation for everything as we speak..

  Hrm.  Jer?  temas?  I'm not sure why it would print a server closed 
connection message using shared memory.  Two things you can try:

  A) Remove the dso attribute.  This will prevent it from being loaded in 
shared memory.  Basically, when etherxd sees a transport line with a dso 
attribute, it loads it from a library and uses shared memory.  You can then 
start up jserver as you where trying to do, using a socket connection.  then 
you can jserver -D -s secret and see more output

  B) Look at the logs.  The location of the logs is inside of the transport 
entry in the registry.  By default, it's 
/usr/local/var/log/jabber/etherxd.error, etherxd.log, and jserver.log.
