Accessing one's Jabber data


In the last few days I’ve been having trouble with my Jabber client (Exodus). As it’s not especially reliable software I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s nothing at all wrong other than with itself, but I thought I’d have a look at my Jabber information stored on the server just in case to rule out corruption. I found said file, but the file has an exclusive lock on it and cannot be read. Is there any way to get around this?
