Yes, the clients used to talk back to whatever address the server put 
in the header of the rpc2 packet. At some point, right before 5.0.0 as 
I recall, I made modifications to use the sender-address as returned
by recvfrom, as far as I know this should be the preferred address that
can be used to send replies back to the peer.
