Be sure that it's not local changes.

I think you are missing that that was the "repair" commit. Are you
sure you didn't pickup the wrong versions? There was about a 1 day
timeframe, where things were hosed but I believe George fixed them
Hmm looking at the diff committed more closely I see that the two
uint64_t are not were they should be. Are you by any chance on i386
or another 32bit platform?
uint64_t t_sndrexmitpack;/* retransmit packets sent */
uint64_t t_rcvoopack; /* out-of-order packets received */
should move after t_pspare2 and the patch I had seen had that.
Maybe we should even move them after _pad to keep the spares
Can you test this one?
