The original message seems to be about `dccsight` instead of `dccproc`,
and as far as I can tell, only `dccsight` has such a message.  If the
server is asked about a set of checksums whose type numbers are not
strictly increasing, it complains "out of order or duplicate cksums".

The error message means that dccsight is being given a set of checksums
that contains more than one string of the matching "Body: %x %x %x %x".
Since dccsight is like dccproc and works with single mail messages
at a time, such a set of checksums is invalid.

I think I answered an implicit question.  I cannot understand
computing checksums for a message, asking a DCC server about them,
and then telling the DCC server a second time about them.
