well, I would say the bare existance of patch-o-matic is an _extremely_
nice thing.. Without it, all patches would clash, and it would always be
up to the user to merge them. Now that we have patch-o-matic, the number
of cases where this is needed was reduced dramatically.

please keep your voice down when talking about things where you are not
sure about what you say.
You are insulting the author of this perfectly stable working piece of code.
Almost all installations of iptables-based firewalls I did are running
the tcp-window-tracking patch.
Yes, there is some peripheral problems which cause some log messages,
but it does definitely not interrupt or disturb your traffic in any
Thanks for your understanding
Live long and prosper
