thanks a lot for your valor and the success report. The EINVAL patch =
(gerrit 10447 as pointed out by Andrew) isn't accepted on the master =
branch yet and thus is really too late for 1.6.6 - sorry.

Our current plan is to release 1.6.6 within ~10 days, with no further =
changes except to the RPM spec file and possibly ripping out the server =
side NAT ping feature (unless we receive feedback that it actually helps =
somewhere). Thus, chances are that what you have deployed is very close =
to the 1.6.6 release.
