I've no idea what you are talking about! I can't even parse that
sentence :)

really? which one?

our code doesn't send a SID in response to any of these, so if one of
them does expect a SID then we must have a bug.

one of them does _receive_ a SID (which we currently ignore without
any apparent ill effect) but none _send_ a SID.

so, do we delete that code?

you're right. I mustn't have ever committed it, or I lost the change
in the great tea trolley disaster of '98.
