    Oh, this is ancient. There were bugs in saned, one of them haven't
    been fixed until recently. But I don't remeber that there were bugs in
    the process of connecting. If everything else fails, try updating.
    There is a newer (1.0.3) package for Debian, but I don't know if it
    works for Potatoe.
