talk doesn't work when talking user on machine having
more than one IP address (talk 0.16-3 and talk-server 0.16-3).
Problem is probably only in client - when using another one
(from some non-RH distribution), it works ok.

I couldn't replicate this using RH62 talk/talk-server and/or RH7x
talk/talk-server.  Both computers had ntalk/talk servers on.

Initially I had some problems initializing the connection when I tried to talk
over non-default route -interface, but killing inetd's and such made it work

The IP addresses of both ends have be be in hosts/DNS though.
