When connecting to a XMPP server on the local machine, the lack of a DNS server causes a crash when client.connect is called with no arguements.

the stack trace looks like:
C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/resolv.rb:709:in `send': A request to send or receive data was disallowed because the socket is not connected and (when sending on a datagram socket using a sendto call) no address was supplied. - send(2) (Errno::ENOTCONN)
from C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/resolv.rb:709:in `send'
from C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/resolv.rb:596:in `request'
... snipped a few lines
from C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/resolv.rb:457:in `getresources'
from C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/xmpp4r-0.5/lib/xmpp4r/client.rb:51:in `connect'
from C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/resolv.rb:380:in `open'
from C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/xmpp4r-0.5/lib/xmpp4r/client.rb:47:in `connect'
from test_connect.rb:11

It's easy enough to work around by supplying an argument to connect.

But, I think it's worth fixing, since removing the DNS server from the equation, shouldn't cause a system that doesn't require one to break.

I've attached a possible patch to client.rb to this post.
