It still had the problem!  I'm mystified.

I've never used that option, either with `dccm' or `dccproc'.
Is it necessary now?  I assume not, from reading the man pages.

No, I upgraded both servers to 1.2.11.  `dccproc' tests on both of
them show the IP checksums.  I'll return to the 1.2.11 clients, and
try the `-K IP' dccd flag.  If that fixes it, I'll be very happy.
