Err, that RFC code had an off-by one bug in it around the code that
determined when to increase the poll-fd array..did you find
that, or maybe work around it some other way?

You probably only hit it when running lots of stations, so
I can run some tests on whatever is in your tree later next
week.  (My own code is frozen for release early next week,
so I can't easily test new stuff until then.)
