I *should* know the code better, but I've been leaving that to Mike as he
knows Java much better than I do.  It's my fault that I can't step up to
the plate (American expression) when he's busy elsewhere.

Here's one idea that will help show what's going on at the lower levels
(you may already know this, of course)...

What OS are you running?  If it's a BSD or Linux system then you should be
able to run TCPdump or Ethereal to grab a capture.  (TCPdump is typically
included with these OSes, but Ethereal is a very nice package to have as
it can read TCPdump *and* Microsoft NetMon output and display it for you.)
If you are running a Windows box then see if you have NetMon.
These tools will let you "see" the packets crossing the interface.

Let me know if that helps.
