I am running antivirus software on this system, but disabling this did not help.
My firewall on this machine is always disabled. Also, on one machine I tried
build 1.5.18, which works fine, and 1.5.21, where I see the problem, without
manipulating anyhing else. As a matter of fact I tried 1.5.21 on several
machines with the same results.
I also just tried a snapshot from 05-15-06 and I see the problem here as well.
I'm going to try an earlier snapshot today to see if I can isolate this.
Thanks for your help,
