Seems that napster with it's closed source has a reason to be paranoid.
The client napster.exe has a limit on the length of a line it will accept,
somewhere around 191 chars. However the server will happily pass along
any length you want upto possibly 32767 (unsigned short int). So, if you
send a public msg or a possibly a privmsg to a channel/nick on the server,
with a length longer than 191, it GPF's the client. This works with BETA5
of the client and possibly earlier ones as well. I would ASSUME this could
be developed into something else altogether. Way ta go napster, inc.
