Here we go again.
EXP IV now has the latest, allegedly greatest, version of both ipset and iptables. And of course kernel 2.6.31, which is now (naturally) .01 revision behind the times. Or .8 revisions, depending on how you look at it (it went through 7 revisions during its lifetime, the last being 126.96.36.199).
BOT House had some serious issues with 2.6.31 and I have been threatening to try to upgrade it again for some time now. This looks like a good weekend to do so. It's been running a stock Debian kernel (188.8.131.52) without ipsets for a long time now and it bugs the HELL out of me.
None of this should impact playing, but there's always the possibility of the IP address of the server changing.
Keep that in mind if you can't connect.
