Isn't there something on the Distributed.Net website about this
happenning if you're running an old proxy and a new client (or is it
the other way round) ???

You may wish to go round your team members and check that they're all
running the latest clients, and also check that you're running the
latest proxy, to eliminate that as possible reasons.

Best wishes from Riley.
