The 0.9 is not included in the inter-bro communication, because it uses 
protocol version 4 and the 1.1 has version 5.  I use 0.9 only for 
testing new (local) wireless events and the two 1.1 for testing

I made a diff and both 1.1 config.h were identical.
Maybe, the problems are caused by VMware? As soon as our wireless-patch 
for 1.1 is finished, I'll install 1.1 on machine B without using VMware 
and tell u whether communication works better or not ;-)
