The relevant part of the output file looks like the bit below.  Look 4 
lines in.

See my previous message for an explanation of how this file is generated 
- the essence is that each line (with \n) is 16 bytes long, and its 
contents are the offset of its first byte.  In a correct file, each 
number is 16 bigger than the next.



000002098175936
000002098175952
000002098175968
000002098175984
000002098225152
000002098225168
000002098225184
000002098225200
000002098225216
000002098225232

2098225152 - 2098175984 - 16 = 49152

UDPcast dropped 49152 bytes at this point.
