There is a bug in 4.00B3 reflectors that does not allow NV to propogate to a
reflector connected via UNICAST-REF.

Say reflector A and B are connected with UNICAST-REF. NV client 1 connects to
A, CU-SeeMee client 2 connects to A and CU-SeeME client 3 connects to B.

CUSM client 2 sees NV client 1 and CUSM client 3

CUSM client 3 sees CUSM client 2

NV client 1 Sees CUSM clients 2 & 3.

So the downstream reflector is not receiving video from NV.

This has been fixed, among other things, in the commercial version, which is
in Alpha test right now.
