Yes, I got that going:

erl -sname node1 -remsh athena at athena

In fact I was trying to unlock an existing roomnick (we'll call it
"thelockednick") that was associated with the wrong person, so I did this:

mnesia:dirty_index_read(muc_registered, "thelockednick", 3).

That enabled me to discover who owned the nick (we will say it was
"foobar at example.com").

Then I could do this:

mnesia:dirty_delete({muc_registered, {{"foobar", "example.com"},


Thanks to badlop for the help. :)
