Hi Stephan,

I was able to make both versions (3.1.8 & 3.2.0b) work.  The problem is 
that the Ubuntu Jaunty upgrade left my loopback device (lo) 
unconfigured, so there was no route to -- that affected 
several other programs in catastrophic ways, so it didn't take too long 
to sort out.

I wanted to let everyone know, in case they encounter the same problem.
