The newest alpha code for fldigi (fldigi-3.13BT) contains a critical bug fix 
for the PSKxxxR modes. The effect was that 1 out of 1000 blocks was not 
properly decoded and the block was resent  by the server ad infinitum...  It 
has been very difficult to find this bug, as it was depending on the input text 
pattern,  it has taken me some 2 weeks and putting several Megabytes of text 
through the system  to detect it.  John, VK2ETA has squashed the bug.  As this 
is a systematic error you are advised to switch to the new code, so the  errors 
do not occur anymore.  The code is at
