Mhmmm this is not supposed to happen any more -- older versions did
indeed have the problem that communication was "driven" by observing
live traffic, but as of 1.1 this should be fixed. Things depend on
whether your OS supports selectable file descriptors or not. Could you
please tell us what OS you are on, and post (or send me) the config.h
file you obtain after running configure? Thanks.
