Hi Andrew,
I've been forced to install latest 1.0 snapshot to one of production servers
since pingd in 1.0.1 was unusable for me. So I'm already testing what's going
to be 1.0.2 release :)
Everything works as expected (even the pingd with multiple NICs).

But today I noticed that there might be one more problem with pingd, it seems
to be leaking memory somewhere :(
on my testing machine, pingd uses (I mean RSS, not VIRT) ~160M RAM, and on
production machine it is already ~360MB, which is quite a lot for small pinging
daemon :)
If You have time, could You have a look at it? I'll gladly provide You with
more information if needed.
with best regards
