I know of nothing and see nothing relevant in `rcsdiff`.

Did you use updatedcc to install the newer versions?
If not did you use *exactly* the same ./configure parameters and
/var/dcc (or /etc/dcc ?) files including flod and dcc_conf?

Have you tried added -d or -dd to GREY_DCCD_ARGS in /etc/dcc/dcc_conf?
If so, are there any differences in the system log messages between
1.3.25 and 1.3.29?

implies that Centos 4.2 is Linux 2.6.  Is that right?
What hardware are you using?

I just tried dccd version 1.3.29 on an older Linux kernel and saw no
Dozens of the DCC servers in the network are running 1.3.26 or newer.
I assume at least a few are running some flavor of Linux.  Am I wrong?
