Welcome to the happy world of plugin coding \o/
(it WordPress and Javascript in one word :)

I have a cut&paste message ready for my readers asking support for this 
type of conflicts, which basically says:
- tell your plugin author to use wp_enqueue_script() so that javascript is 
only added once
- tell your plugin author to add their javascript only on their own plugin 
- tell your plugin author not to use a javascript library that is already 
bundled with WP, but to use that one instead (no prototype.lite.js, no 
custom prototype or jquery, etc)

(hope it was not one of my plugins conflicting -- If so, reply off list so 
I dont look like a noob to others :)
