Well I've upgraded to today's CVS, but the problem remains.  I've also
tried the new version on my old server but it works there, so obviously
there's some issue with my system configuration:

  Working server: Slackware 9.1, kernel (2005-06-19)
  Broken server: Gentoo 2007.0, kernel (2008-02-23)

Both servers have Realtek 8169 gigabit ethernet cards, using the r8169
driver.  Both MTUs are 1500, both are connected via the same switch to
my desktop PC.

According to gkrellmd running on each server and on my desktop PC,
broadcasting PID 8192 on the broken server only transmits/receives
1.7MB/sec, whereas it transmits/receives 3MB/sec on the working server.

Is there any local network config that needs to be set up before
dvbstream will work?
