I noticed this same thing during my attempts to turn this off, I
discovered that (as far as I was able to tell) erlang supports dynamic
loading of modules when the module code is explicitly called,
module:function(args) as opposed to just function(args), I asked about
this in the ejabberd jabber chat room and was told that this was fixed
in cvs, but I wasn't told how it was fixed nor did I see anything that
might have fixed this in the few minutes I've had to look into it since
then. I currently have the registration code commented out in ejabberd
to turn this off 'correctly' that is to not advertise the capability and
to not respond to requests for it. I'm hoping to get more clarification
on this sometime this week as I am working on cleaning up some other
modifications of mine to ejabberd.
