That and the packet leeching, you know, the problem with a constant stream
of con/discon packets being pointed at a connected 1.0 and it sends back
random packets. And of course an expanded aux-id array and recognition of
"recovered" chat spew, i.e. recovered aux packets are checked against the
aux-id array as well instead of just passing strait thru to the chat
window. Note I didn't make the recovered chat spew WP specific, tho I've
yet to see it from non-WP clients, but I have seen it from 2.1.1 2.1.2 and
3.1.* versions which leads me to believe this may be a historic problem
along the lines of the recovery bug. With the recovery bug fixed in the
Cornell client and by ERef's the spew bug is now showing up.

You were just *waiting* for Martyne to show up on the list for that one,
