	If this is "NT1", then I do have a patch in to
	set a lower limit on the protocol negotiated
	at connect-time: see

	My comment was:
This is a proposed defence against downgrading attack during
protocol negotiation: it has not yet been reported as a problem,
but I suspect that negotiating CORE with them will result in 
unsuspecting clients sending plain-text passwords. Not to speak 
about our passing through rarely-tested code (;-))

	About the other questions, I have little idea (:-))
