I think that is a bug I recently introduced when I fixed another problem.
Before the fix, you could not use `dccd -a` without any 
local host names on /var/dcc/flod file lines.  I think that works
now--never mind that I forget to remove the warning from the dccd man page.

I think I have a fix for the fix for 1.3.4.   I hope to release 1.3.4
within days.  Until then, a work-around is to add local host names
or addresses to lines in /var/dcc/flod.   Even that is not necessary
except when the remote flooding peer has a firewall that expects
a TCP connection from the -a address.  It looks as if that applies to
only two of your DCC server's peers.  In your position, I'd not worry
about it but would just install 1.3.4.
