Ah, thanks for pointing it out. I used to look at the sasl.log but it
changed to erlang.log and I missed it...

I forgot to mention I'm using ejabberd 2.1.10

Here is what I get in the erlang.log:

=CRASH REPORT==== 19-Mar-2012::15:07:21 ===

My setup goes is based on two nodes (jabtest.easynet.global and 
jabtest2.easynet.global) for the domain jabber.easynet.global

What could be the "bad argument"?
Could the hostname (with .global) be the cause of the issue?
(it's the only thing that might look suspicious compared to the
other working setups I have...)

Thanks for your help.
