Nope, I'm fixing it at the moment. It also doesnt seem to endianise
characters currectly on OSX (testlo fails at testlo.c:575), and I'm sure
I've seen that before and been sent a patch, but I'm damned if I can
remember what I did with it.

There source address stuff doesnt work 100% under linux either, there
seems to be some problem when IPV6 is involved, in some cases.
