I doubt that "continue not asking" message has anything to do with
upgrading from 1.3.4 to 1.3.5.  It indicates that dccifd is having
persistent problems getting answers from any DCC servers and so has
stopped trying.  The DCC client code does an exponential backoff
of "continuing not asking" that starts at around 8 seconds and is 
clamped at something like 256 seconds.

More likely causes include some sort of transient network problem.
