So there is a patch, now that I remember who wrote it.


That solved the problem for us/them, its kind of strange how it works
though. It makes the code accept the broken request, detect the error in
the patch (not version 4), and send back an error. This will make the
client try again, this time, it send a correct packet.

At least that is how Mattias and I rememeber how it worked.

Good luck,
