I'll just have to hope someone has a supply of those two very rare
items. :-) 

I think most of my network problems are caused by the NDIS driver shims
for my wireless card on my FreeBSD-CURRENT system.  But, I have not
actually found the problem yet.  That's higher on my priority list than
my offlineimap blowups.  It really sucks to lose all 20 of your ssh
sessions.  I don't seem to have time for that one either...
