Hi

Now I'v setup almost all of the new clients and they
are running fine. Congratulations to the bovine-team
for the fast delivery!

But the Amiga-Client doesn't wan't to work correctly
here. It quits after every block:

I don't send any signals to it and it's setup exactly
like the clients on the other computers (not Amiga)
which work fine...

If no other Amiga-users comlain about the same bug, then
it may be related to me running Executive (a unix-like
task-scheduler).

Are you killing a child thread after every block? If so,
it may kill the whole client not only the child.
Is it possible to make it work in a single thread?
