Could you check with `ps -wwwwvax | grep dccm` or `ps -lef | grep dccm`
or some other way that dccm is not running with a -t threshold that
would explain it?

Few if any public DCC servers other than dcc.niet.net run with a `dccd -K`
value that saves env_From checksums.

It should be easy to reproduce the syndrome by adding an entry to
/var/dcc/map biased to dcc.niet.net with 

   cdcc "add dcc.niet.net RTT-2000 ms"

If you do try that, be sure to use 

   cdcc "delete dcc.niet.net"

when you are finished testing to delete the test entry.

I've done more testing with something like that and still failed to
get anything to pay attention to the env_From totals.
