Hi Jah,

During testing using Patrick's branch of svn, I found that threads were
no longer starting (or rather, resuming) in the target order defined on
the commandline and so, when scanning a range of targets from a given
assignment, the whois queries were being made for a target that wasn't
necessarily the first one in the range.  This made the presentation of
pointers to the host script result a bit ugly: [...]

I believe the "Universal Awareness" change I've posted here may be
useful for solving this problem:

Could you please comment on this?

[...] Strangely enough, since the merge of Patrick's branch, threads
seem to be resuming in order again, so we're now doubly assured of a
nice ordered result!

I haven't merged any of my nse_main changes with the main branch.
Threads should still have an undefined execution order in my branch,
is that where you are testing. I get the impression that "merge of
Patrick's branch" implies you are testing in /nmap?

Thanks,
