Update: 2010-02-04: The changes to ParseHex are no longer needed as they're part of the bitcoin source now. An updated build for the N900 is available here:

http://www.bluishcoder.co.nz/bitcoin-pool/bitcoind-b1a657.gz

This is built from github commit b1a657.

When I'm running bitcoind-b1a657 I notice an irc connection to some irc server being established, e.g.
tcp        0      0 192.168.3.118:56738     irc.lfnet.org:ircd      ESTABLISHED

What's the purpose of this connection?
Bitcoin opens an IRC connection to lfnet for bootstrapping (finding peers).  New nodes have to find out about existing nodes somehow.

Bitcoin opens an IRC connection to lfnet for bootstrapping (finding peers).  New nodes have to find out about existing nodes somehow. 

Run it with '-no-irc' to prevent it from making an IRC connection. You can also use '-no-listen' to prevent it from listening for incoming connections and use '-connect' to explicitly connect to a node. This minimizes the number of connections to your phone.

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!

It's -nolisten and -noirc.

It takes quite a while (a few minutes) to stop but it does eventually. I don't know why.
