Re: brloop not working

The server is being HAMMERED again ....

There appears to be a failure mode whereby when busy, clients call up,
say "HELO", then "QUIT" :-((

This adds to the hammering :-((

The code expects brclient to return one line which is the comamnd line flags
for brutessl, followed by the config data.

As brclient is failing, brutessl is being called without the expected args :-(

The first arg of brutessl is the file from which to read the config info.
"-" is a unix convention for the file "stdin".

SO: go grab brclient 0.12 which has a more efficient "-L" flag.
    go read http://www.brute.cl.cam.ac.uk/brute/how2run.html
	in particular, create .brloop.rc containing

		BRNAME="Jyri Kaljundi"
		BRID="[email protected]"

	which will stop it checking the commands, set the ID, etc ...
