Most of my affected clients are disparate individuals spread across a
wide ranging age group. One is in their 90's, But I agree that they
are only a small proportion of the total.

The only ones that are affected are using SuSE 10.3 (could just be a
All the ones affected are using "Talktalk or Onetel" as their ISP.
A clean re-install of 10.3 clears the problem until the machine

On a couple of machines I found that IPV6 had been turned on, but
