[nos-bbs] Convers link IP

Hi Gus,

Thanks for responding.

There's no problem with convers running.

The issue occurs if the link should fail (for any reason), the server tries
to relink to a bogus ip address that somehow shows up in the 'convers link'
statement.  In the example (below), the ip is nowhere to be
found on my system.  The correct link ip should be which was
used to make the original connection to the remote server.

Shortly after I start the convers server, a bogus ip replaces the address.  The server contines to run without a problem.  But,
if it should fail, it trys to relink using the bogus ip and, of course, it
fails to relink because the bogus ip is not associated with any convers
server(s). Also, the bogus ip's are not listed in the 'convers filter 

It doesn't matter what convers server(s) I choose to link with, the original
link address always gets replaced by a bogus ip address.  The bogus address
ip remains the same, unless I choose a differnet convers server. Then, the
bogus ip changes.

I don't recall this behavior in previous versions of Jnos.

Hope this made sense :)
