Be sure that it's not local changes.

I think you are missing that that was the "repair" commit.  Are you
sure you didn't pickup the wrong versions?  There was about a 1 day
timeframe, where things were hosed but I believe George fixed them

Hmm looking at the diff committed more closely I see that the two
uint64_t are not were they should be.  Are you by any chance on i386
or another 32bit platform?

 	uint64_t	t_sndrexmitpack;/* retransmit packets sent */
 	uint64_t	t_rcvoopack;	/* out-of-order packets received */
should move  after t_pspare2[6] and the patch I had seen had that.

Maybe we should even move them after _pad[] to keep the spares

Can you test this one?
