POE::Component::IRC just hangs when trying to connect to a server that doesn't exist/work. I suppose this could be solved by the Plugin::Connector, so that it sets a connect_timeout delay just before connecting. If connecting times out, it should shuffle the servers and try the next one in the list. It would also be nice with ->server and ->port wrappers around $irc->{server} and $irc->{port} if possible

I've seen this problem only on Windows, so I'm assuming that's what you're using. This is due to a bug which will be fixed in the next release of POE. I added the server() and port() accessors you requested.
