  One of the things that Andr=E9 discovered when we were working on this
upstreaming problem before was that when there were dropped packets going
from Radio (and Frontier) running on OS X to a frontier server running on
Win 2K that the packets were not resent properly.  Is this an indication
that there is a problem at the OS level with the tcp transport or do you
think that it is an issue in the application.  From the client side it was
possible to duplicate the problem to some extent using the builtin xml-rpc
commands in applescript.  Any thoughts???

Sorry that this is not very newbie seeming
