Thanks for reporting this.  I don't think this is a know problem.  I
need a bit more information to isolate it.

1.1 is a bit old.  Would you mind please upgrading to 2.0.1 and seeing
if it is still reproducible?

So it looks like either the client has got upset and dropped the
connection, or the connection closed for some other reason.

It looks like you're running distccd from inetd.  Which inetd is it?

Are you running Debian unstable?  What processor and kernel do you

If upgrading does not fix it and you can reproduce the problem could
you perhaps try getting an strace of the client?
