 As a newbie at this, I have to ask a stupid question. =20

What do you mean by "Daily Build".  Is the 1.3.64 client I downloaded a
few days ago different than the one available today?  They both still
say 1.3.6400.

This appears to be a locking problem within rx which is being looked
Disabling hyper-threading appears to prevent the bug from being tickled.
