Im using Suse 10.0 on both machines. One Bro1.1 runs on PC 'A', the 
other on PC 'B' runs on VMware Server, because I started testing with 
our wireless 0.9a9 edition and we havnt finished the wireless patch for 
1.1 yet. It should be done within the next days.

A: Suse 10.0 & Bro 1.1
B: Suse 10.0 & "Bro-wireless" 0.9a9
    VMware: Suse 10.0 Bro 1.1

The config.h are equal on both machines.

bye, Sandro
