Ah, me again :)

Just looked onto my server... The change i made is:

in function Loop()

There is a block /* FIXME...
if(bufsize > 1024)
   bufsize = 64;

but bufsize will never be initialized as i looked the sources. Just


before this block and it should do the work (does so at my redhat... i
think some 100s of boots now without problems.)
