Will do.  I'll try to throw in some pertinent output statements and see
what falls out.

Maybe.  My DSL connection does like to hang for several moments at a time.
But at no point do I remember having noticed that other connections hang at
the same time (ie, telnet session).  On the other hand, I have seem all
connections hang, and fetchnews recover quite correctly.  So I *doubt*
that's the issue.

Hmm... Perhaps I'll do an upgrade too.  I've heard so many bad things about
2.2.16, though, and I don't think the IDE patches are up to speed with the
2.2.17 stuff.  Ugh.
