[hybrid] HOPM not connecting under FreeBSD

I read about HOPM and figured it would probably be a better choice than 
the outdated BOPM, which I previously relied on for many years. I 
downloaded the tarball, installed it and edited the configuration 
appropriately. Unfortunately, it didn't connect:

So I cleard my hopm.conf, copied reference.conf to hopm.conf again and 
made sure not to change anything but the IRC server's IP and port. That 
didn't help. BOPM, however, connects just fine, to the same IP/port.

This is my setup:
$ uname -a
FreeBSD [HOSTNAME] 10.1-RELEASE-p6 FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p6 #0: Tue Feb 
24 19:00:21 UTC 2015     
root at amd64-builder.daemonology.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

Since I really want to run HOPM, I set up a Debian machine, and from 
there it seems to work without any major disappointments. In other 
workds, the problem seems to be platform-specific.

Kind regards,
Martin Pola
