I guess I don't understand why the v2 clients are getting failed network
opens.  They are all on the same ethernet.  Some more info on the
scenario:

Client:  Pentium 120 running: win95 gui
         Setup to networking mode 5 with perproxy's hostname

Server:  Dual P133 running: Linux perproxy, and 2 rc5 clients.
         rc5 clients are nice 19, proxy is nice -1

The client submits 5 keyblocks to perproxy successfully.
Perproxy starts flushing out-buff
Client gets a single open error trying to get blocks from perproxy.
Client goes to another proxy.

The only reason this is an issue for me is I'm trying to parse the
perproxy's logfile to get some stats for our cpu "farm" and the log file
only records completed blocks, so when my clients get blocks from
somewhere else, it throws off my stats! :-)

I suppose the whole point will become moot once the *real* stats are back
online.

Thanks,
Tom
