I find that strangely comforting.

The machine seems to be otherwise fine.

If it matters, the machine is SMP, running a pair of P3 1Ghz, on a ServerWorks
board.  I wouldn't think that would matter, but maybe it does.

I've added some more printfs, but nothing's shown for a while.  I got 31 hits
in 11 minutes, then nothing; I am wondering whether this is triggered by
interaction with specific machines with malfunctioning TCP stacks.  That would
explain going a week without seeing it, then having 10 hits in a row, always
in sendmail.
