I was wondering if you rebooted vger. I could traceroute right up to vger,
but vger was dead when I went to download the patch :)

However, I think there may be a problem with the patch. Now, with three
different ftp clients since you rebooted vger, everytime I try to download the
patch, the client hangs. The common symptom? The ftp client is waiting for
data across the ftp-data port, but instead, I'm showing 24 bytes in the Recv-Q
on the control connection. All of the clients are blocked on the read, so it
makes me wonder if the data wasn't intended for the ftp-data connection
instead (which shows 0 bytes in the Recv-Q, and never seems to transmit any
data through that pipe). Anyway, I suppose it could be some other kind of
flaky error, but it is a bit tooo repeatable to be simply over looked.
