No, I'm not sure. I've seen it referenced somewhere and I'll try to  
find the source of the reference. It makes sense to me though, and I  
would use it if I needed to scale to that number of connected resources.

I don't understand, using a non-sasl login part. I always get the  
extra bytes myself. As for being "random", how can you tell? How can  
you tell if you are not being sent to a different server?
