Actually, the code was developed against the CMU "trapsend" program, if
you'd like to pick nits..

You should contact with the error that occured (or, for
that matter, should have brought it up while I was at the interop
testing). I don't recall any mention of problems prior to now. As far as
I'm aware, all of the problems were fixed in that beta version that was
being used prior to the interop testing. We later discovered a possible
problem that only applies to SNMPv2 traps, but this has since been fixed.
Perhaps you were sending SNMPv2 traps, however, and happened to bump into
this problem.
