Hi all,

I was just wondering if the following bugfix in 2.6.4 was a serious problem that could cause
a problem in a destination file and if it did would that get picked up by the checksum ?

Cheers - Steve

    - Fixed a potential protocol-corrupting bug where the generator could
      merge a message from the receiver into the middle of a multiplexed
      packet of data if only part of that data had been written out to the
      socket when the message from the generator arrived.
