Mike Mitchell, who wrote the fixes to make the connection-retry patch work
on NOVM without leaking prodigious quantities of filedescriptors, sent me
a copy of that 1.NOVM.17 patch, as well as a new version for 1.NOVM.20.

Since the changes Mike made also make the VM version of the patch more
tidy and well-mannered with respect to filedescriptor timeouts, I applied
the NOVM patch to the VM version, made two one-line tweaks by hand, and
produced a new VM version of the patch.

If you're already running the previous VM patch, there's no pressing need
to change -- I ran it for six months with nary a hiccough, just an
elevated number of filedescriptors in use. However, you can clearly see
from my <A HREF="">MRTG
graphs of filedescriptor use</A> that Mike Mitchell's fixes do make a
significant difference. I installed the new VM version at around 2:00pm

Mike's fixes are only in the 1.1.20 VM patch -- the 1.1.10 and 1.1.14 are
the same as ever. The patches for both VM and NOVM are available at
