  Error writing 4 bytes to client. -1. Exiting

	It really was a network problem: the client 
	failed, disconencted and marked the shares
	as doubtfull.  When the user browsed them
	again, it reconnected.

	Suspect bad hubs, eternet settings (full/half duplex,
	for example) or too much broadcast traffic.
