[distcc] Problems with distcc hanging on large compiles (Problem solved)

Thanks much Chris!  Looks like pulling the head revisions from CVS did the trick.

I'm happily compiling away on both my home systems running Debian and the office 
farm running RH.  When I've got things fully revved up, I'll report some (hopefully) 
very impressive numbers.

Sorry, I should have gone into a little more detail.  The fix makes
distcc not hang if the remote job crashes.  'can't be distributed' did not
mean 'if the job never gets distributed to the remote machine'.

I was getting these hangs when using ccache and distcc together, which
triggered a bug in the remote distccd, causing it to crash and the local
distcc to hang.
