The client works fine on Windows from what I have seen so far.  (Been on 
my latop and a few Windows Terminal Servers.)  One of my users was 
having a problem getting tickets / tokens with the new KfW 3.0 plugin 
though.  Hopefully he submitted bug reports to the proper places.

I haven't really tried it yet on Linux (still using the 1.3.81 packages 
in sarge) or Mac OS (hope to start testing on Tiger soon.)

On what OS?

I just compiled 1.4.1-rc2 (--enable-debug-lwp, as per recomendation) on 
Solaris 10 yesterday and I intend to install it on one of my servers 
today and see if the random bosserver crashes (in 1.4.0) stop.  I was 
told the problem is likely something to do with LWP.

Asking a whole bunch of times won't get you answers.  I'd suggest simply 
looking through the code to see what it does or simply wait longer for 
an answer.  You could also try it out and see what happens.
