It's an interesting bug that caused it.  I've now duplicated the
problem myself (using two Xastir's hooked back-to-back, no internet
servers involved in the test) and proven what causes it, so it can
now be fixed.  I'll try to have that done today and dump out a new
development snapshot for people to snag, or people can update via
CVS which is even easier.

It's amazing nobody saw this before, as it appears to be a
long-standing bug in the code.

Thanks for pointing it out, and the poor guy in France that got
temporarily blamed for it appears none the worse for wear.  I talked
