Can you tell me how to reproduce it?

And i agree, signed counters don't make much sense here, but an
overflow still would probably happen, just no negative numbers then...

Read ya, Phil

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2004-10-22 18:09:42 UTC
I saw it happen on a very congested hotel wireless network.
Haven't managed to reproduce it under other conditions.

Comment 3 Phil Knirsch 2005-09-05 12:36:48 UTC
I've tried to reproduce it here but without any luck.

If you happen to find a reproducible case please let me know and i'll give it
another shot.

Read ya, Phil

Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-09-12 07:43:39 UTC
I guess I've not been on a similarly crappy network since :-)
Might be worth bringing this up upstream, as it involves changing prototypes of
various functions etc, not just a simple %d -> %ud conversion.
