I have Linux 1.2.13 running 4.0b3, and I have to say, I have never had
that problem. (I did have some problems with 4.0b3 and version .84b7 of
Cornell's CUSEEME.) I don't know what is causing your problem but I can
make our reflector binary available to you. I am not sure that will solve
your problem tho. I compiled it on our system, but it should work fine on

Email me back, and I will put it up on our ftp site.
