I actually had to turn it on a year ago to be able to do a backup from a 
old machine I have running, the problem revealed itself when large 
amounts of
data were transferred, TCP_COMPAT_42 solved the problem.

I don't know if it's a common situation though, but it was nice to be 
able to
get it working :-)

(There are actually some machines that uses XNS also :-)
