I'm sorry that this doesn't add any more to what you already knew about
the bug #450, but the report is there for completeness. Your 1397 version
works just fine, for me (with a single network card).
Yes, I know I can add the servers by hand, but as you have other entries
for the pool servers I though it might be nice to add the UK ones as well.
Plus other countries in Europe should you have any free time left! (Free
time, what's that?)
