    Due to upstreams DNS issue, got resolved to completely wrong IP adress.

    I recorded my internal ESS clients lodging about 5-10 HTTP GET requests per second, per client.

    Basically, it got resolved to a website that doesnt offer 404's, but rather shows their graphic heavy start page instead.

    So when ESS wanted to auto-update to and the update.ver it didnt know what to do with it, and consequently kept hammering.

    On average, each client generated about 30-40mb of traffic every ten minutes due to this <_<

    Please, would you consider having some sort of sanity check on the auto-update procedure. if you don't get the expected reply, please don't immediatly try again. thank you
