I have 15 with dyndns running, and no problems like this.  Very odd.

Turns out I don't need to.  I never seem to have an uptime longer than 10 
minutes.  This system is the EXACT same hardware and software as at least 10 
other boxes.  It worked fine in my location, and just started this on 
install.  Would not have noticed except for the dyndns problem.


PS:  It rebooted once while I was typing this.
