Hmm, well the only thing I would say is make sure that either both ends
are your recompiled version of pa 0.9.8 + patch. It's easy to forget to
either install and/or restart one end of the equation. The symptoms
appear to be so close to what I previously observed that I think it must
be the same problem.

Incidentally you'll see from the SVN history that I actually updated my
patch after I wrote the original mail and it no longer tweaks the
protocol version. This means that it doesn't necessarily work overly
well with older servers (e.g. I'm not sure how it will work with a 0.9.7
server). If both ends are 0.9.8 then all should be good. It certainly
works fine for me!

Yeah I've had issues with this too. I originally attributed it to my
wireless setup but I've not really looked into it further as tunnel
works for my needs.

Should be fine. Again make sure both ends are upgraded and restarted is
all I can really suggest :(
