I'm using GNU Freetalk along with expect in order to send notifications to my phone – Freetalk has a readline interface, and I use expect to make a series of non interactive scripts that send information to another Jabber account.

I'd like to have these scripts end freetalk 'properly' – that is to say

user@domainname message one
user@domainname message two

which would print out

message one
message two 

then quit.

However Freetalk 'helpfully' adds user@domainame automatically so I get

message one
message two

as the output. The expect script still ends, but there's a delay.

How would I stop Freetalk from adding in the 'buddy' address automatically?
