Hey Nikki,
Hmmmm, that should have done it.  Sure you were running the mod'd version :O)

I need the actual packets to debug.  But we may be able to generate enough debug
information to divine what is going on.

I'll put together a version that will generate a bunch of debug information, and
we'll see what that sez.  I'll send that tomorrow.
