I'd be (secretly, of course) delighted if this were a reason to move  
from a competitor's product, but that's not the case here. Even if  
this server were written in C, with nice debugging support, and you  
had the source, this wouldn't help you. M-Link's dropping the  
connection on its side because it thinks you're running a protocol it  
doesn't recognise, so you'd need to debug that.

Luckily, M-Link *is* written in C, and I do have the source, as well  
as a debug build that's duplicating the problem, so I'll take a look.

I can't discuss Isode customers, however I can tell you that I  
upgraded my server to a more recent build of M-Link and haven't  
noticed this issue before, so I'm pretty sure it's our side.
