I don't think it uses test/test, I am not using tree.c but just wrote some 
code myself that uses your library. The problem is (I'm afraid) not just a 
matter of username/password...

Hmm I could get you a capture of the network traffic I get, but I don't think 
that's going to help a lot. Let me look at when it exactly goes wrong first 
and rule out some situations. I don't exactly know what you mean by 'A 
listing of answers' and I don't think I know how to get you one :)

What could be a big help for me, is a little hint on where I can find the 
debugging output of your library when it's initialized with the proper 
debuglevel... Right now I don't actually know where to look :)
