Heh, yeah, Scott caught this brain-o and submitted a patch.  I've
fixed it in tree and should be posting new tarball shortly.  There
haven't been any other bug reports to date, which is either
encouraging or discouraging depending on how you look at it.  Given I
just introduced this brain-o, I'm leaning towards the positive side of
things right now.  :-]  -sc


Fix mcm_server_deactivate() to take into account down servers.  Fix an
off-by-one error in mcm_server_find() that was causing problems when
detecting when a server hash index needed to be wrapped.
