Sorry I forgot to respond.  Thanks Jeff.  I actually wasn't sure if this was the
problem or not in Mariusz's case because wouldn't this only be a problem for a
Windows plugin (i.e., xmpp.dll)?  Well in any case, the function wasn't
exported, so I added it, and since the problem was observed with 1.6.0, I just
scheduled this change to be backported to 1.6.2.
