I'm also getting "Empty reply" messages back from deschall-u2t; however, I
*do* have libwww installed and happy (including the URI::Escape stuff); just
installed it, all 'make test's passed.

Um, do I *really* have to use perl5.003? I'm currently at 5.002 with
supplemental package installs such as libnet, MD5, Socket, and the libwww.

I took the liberty of adding the "got raw reply" line just before the unescape
call, just to check if in fact unescape was eating the reply: nope. Bueller?
Am I getting through to the deschall-gateway?

The TCP requests would have come via mpngate1.ca.us.ibm.com (or mpngate2
