Thanks for this info. It rather blows Csaba's and my theory out of the water
- we are looking for a bug in the input data when a mp client joins. We
thought at one time it was in mp-nimitz, but that's been discounted. Like
you, I find running in debug makes it disappear!

Csaba might have trapped the bug last night - we await more info.

Of course, it's not happening right now.
