damn didn't answer this part of your question :-)

ok.  what compiler are you using?  i suspect it's not gcc, or a compiler 
that initialises its static variables to all NULLS.

if not, then bzero the static cli_state structure at the start of the 
nmbsync.c routine.


p.s - gotta rush: got a concert rehearsal.
