  Ok... the issue isn't related to hostname lookups.  The server keeps
"known" clients internally, which are global.  i.e. the "per-server"
lookups confused the code.

  Try doing "cvs update".  It should be fixed.

  It does now.

  The clients aren't read on HUP.  See the debug output for what's read
on HUP.

  i.e. In CVS head, HUP *works*.  Nothing bad happens, and *some*
modules are reloaded.  Even though not everything is reloaded... what
*is* reloaded doesn't cause anything to crash.
