2001-11-01 Silvan Minghetti

servers loaded by --server-list.

* Select is now performed on the Socket object directly,
instead of requireing a PFileDescriptor object. The
PFileDescriptor class might be a subject to drop completly.

to the challenge request wont be listed by list requests.
They are not deleted, because they're still heartbeating.
2001-06-23 Silvan Minghetti
* Tabs in the --server-list are now accepted.

go into private mode. This adds ban filter for all

specified with --log-level. It's allways on level "Info".
* Invalid queries are logged only with log-level "Debug".
