Actually, can't attach the log from browse :-(

Here's the relevant snippet:

Additional notes:

During the same testing session, laptop2 succeeded in seeing shared activities from other laptops, but laptop1 consistently failed.

Re-associating laptop1 to the access point made things work for laptop1.

Laptop1 had been the first machine present in the network.

I have seen this if first part of name of sugar user has the same name or first portion of string of letters from a similar name. ie: satellitabcd and satellitefgh.

May this be a duplicate of #928 ?

I have been trying today to reproduce any unstability with salut on soas and once iptables was disabled everything worked consistently. The laptops all were named starting with tomeu-, so I think that may not be the issue here.
