Can't remember ever having said anything contrary to that either. :) 
Apparently my memory doesn't serve me right anymore.

Anyway, I've had enough of this watchdog thing - it seems to cause 
problems for some m0n0wall users that like to push their boxes at 
maximum throughput for more than a few seconds, there's no clean 
solution (yet), etc. My solution is to remove it from m0n0wall, and 
that's what I'm going to do.
