I wasn't one of those who reported this before, but I haven't been
able to get my server open to incoming requests since Wednesday night.
The requests went up to an average of about 10/sec - not large, but
enough to bring out a UDP bug in my router that causes it to crash
after about fifteen minutes - presumably at one of the ten minute

During my investigations, I also noticed many errors like this:
Event Type:	Error
Event Source:	NTP
Event Category:	None
Event ID:	1
Date:		10/10/2004
Time:		20:12:56
User:		N/A
Computer:	my server
too many recvbufs allocated (40) 

However there are many of these errors that pre-date the router

W2K - ntp v4.2.0
