Thank you Sergey!  In my case, all three workstations that could
generate packets are on 7.7.0.  The host alexandria, which relays
between them, is on 7.6.0, but alexandria never originates area packets
itself, and lacks the private keys to it.  alexandria is also the only
"subs" entry for the workstations.

Would that 7.6.0/7.7.0 difference be enough to account for this?

Completely understood!  That is how Free Software works.

You are very much tempting me to either learn Go or attempt to write a
compatible implementation in Rust.  Hmmm.... Since I also don't have a
lot of free time, learning Go will probably be what happens :-)
