I'm resurrecting this rather old thread, mostly for informational
purposes. Back in July, I was upgrading to 1.5.1, and had a
problem which looked something like this:

Recently (over the weekend), I upgraded both my home firewall and
my workstation at work to 1.5.2. At work I used ssh and at home
pserver. Work worked fine, and home still had the above
