How do you figre that the fifth system was in fact answering?
Did `cdcc "host; rtt"` get answers?

Are you running FreeBSD 4.10?  This week I finally got around to doing
somet tests with FreeBSD 4.10 and found that UDP socket disconnecting
is indeed newly broken in FreeBSD 4.*.  One symptom is that `cdcc rtt`
overlooks all servers after the first one that does not answer. 
I will release 1.2.58 with a work-around later today.
