Arg!  Can people on this list not top-post!?  It makes for very hard
reading when the question is before the last reply.

I haven't had a problem like this with my code and using Net::Jabber, so
its probably in your code.  I noticed that you didn't have a "use
strict" in the original code, can you throw that in there?

The above error indicates that you're doing something wrong with a hash
in your code.  If you're not sure what kind of variable you have use
Data::Dumper like this:

	use Data::Dumper;
	my $dontknow = somefunc();
	print Data::Dumper($dontknow);

and you'll get an idea what type the variable is.
