Installed the new update, got ejabberd going again by removing all the data
and now all is working again. I now have my two test C2s and two B4s
connected and re-registered. 

Despite the update (which is definitely installed - if I repeat the command
it tells be it's already done and fully updated) I still had to do the work
around of removing all four users from the ejabberd webadmin and restarting
everything before I could see them in the neighbourhood views. This happens
each time a laptop is restarted. I tried shutting everything down then
starting up again - and the users have reappeared in Webadmin and I have to
delete them all again and restart before it works.

However, once all started up as above, it is fine: 

- All four show up in the eJabberd control panel as users
- All have the same correct results for olpc-netstatus 
- I tried sharing Memorize - all four OK
- Video chat is OK between any two
- Server access and Internet browsing all OK (updated them each online)

However, it is almost there - Great work Martin and XS devel team - it's a
brilliant project, and have a great Christmas!

there's something misconfigured with the domain name. Maybe you
changed domain name?

One way is to remove all the ejabberd data.

 - service ejabberd stop
 - rm /var/lib/ejabberd/spool/*
 - service ejabberd start

and then re-do the steps of creating the 'admin' acct for ejabberd,
and creating the 'Online' roster...

I've re-added the CC to the server-devel list so that the solution is
findable in case someone else hits this... hope that's ok!
