Are you sharing the log file with another copy of the program.  (I'm
running it here so that I have 3 clients sharing a logfile.  when I run a
fourth client with a -update and a separate logfile I consistently get the
results of my -update sent to me.  When I had it using the same log file I
never got anything.  I also appear to be getting logfile results from only
one client.)    My guess is that the clients are keeping the logfile open
continuosly, thus preventing any other client from opening the logfile for
reading and sending out.  

Something to consider.
