No, it's the correct line...

  X-DCC-UofM-Metrics: electra 1033; bulk Body=1 Fuz1=1 Fuz2=208

If you mean `cdcc info' the output looks quite normal.  Only my two
DCC servers are listed.

I don't think so.  The IP checksums seems to be in the database of
both servers.  `dbclean' ran from cron early in the morning, and
didn't report anything unusual.

I'm going to try reverting to the 1.1.44 client, to see if that works
