My apologies, I skipped many of the details because I had already posted
them on May 24, when I found the same problem with client 442.  I was
disappointed to find that it wasn't fixed in 443 or 443b.

The client machine is fine.  Client 432 is working on it as expected;
it's just the 442+ clients that fail to communicate.

Also, the Solaris proxy reports the following when the Linux 442 and 443b
client attempts to fetch and flush:

	Client: Accepted connection with x.x.x.x
	Client: x.x.x.x is requesting server status
	Client x.x.x.x has ended communications.
	Client: Closing client connection with x.x.x.x

So the client is connecting, having a h*ll of a problem, then giving up.

The client is running Slackware 3.6, 2.2.7, libc 5.4.46 with 2.0.7
runtime.  It is also proxying 50k keys/day through a 304 proxy.  Good

The test proxy was running SunOS 5.6.
