mmm, I suspect something is wrong with the Windows network code. As I
always test stuff under UNIX, it's not so surprising you get problems -
besides Allegro forced me to implement a bunch of hacks which, as any
hack, are bound to cause bugs. I'll try and test this. BTW, you're not
the first one to report such bugs, even if I've not been able to
reproduce them yet.

I believe there's a 100kb limit on the list, so your log might make it
through 8-) I'm pretty sure if you zip it it will be OK.

Have a nice day,
