We are seeing exactly the same behaviour Andreas described. Actually
it works fine until version 1.5.8, but if we use any version >1.5.8,
including patched 1.5.19 and 1.5.20, we get lots of mangled messages.
So it's not really the same problem that was fixed in 1.5.20.
Any ideas? We'd also love to use the latest version and not have to stick
Thanks in advance,
