Thanks for your reply. This is what I have noticed:
- during the initial configuration (cmake) something fails and the 
"backoff_tcp" file is being created
- when I remove the "backoff_tcp_dk.home.local" file after the build 
configuration is done  (when the actual build process starts) distcc starts 
sending out files for compilation again

In case you need it, I uploaded the debug-log from the distcc server 

Now, is there a way to disable the "backoff" mechanism? I have created a 
script which checks for "backoff_tcp*" files every five seconds and removes 
them. I know this is _extremely_ ugly, but it works for me ;)
