Hi James,

As per your recommendations I have upgraded today the Server and all the
Clients in order to reflect the same installed software to avoid any
'compatibility' issues even if there might not be any.

For the Server, everything went fine and I have tuned back the
Server_Config.ovpn file to reflect the previous configuration with the
'proto udp' and 'tun-mtu', 'fragment' and 'mssfix' features. I have also
removed the 'mute' statement and put back 'verb 9'.
I have also changed all the clients in this order.
Everything seems to be fine for the moment. I did not see anything about the
previous 'bug'.

I will send you the complete server trace tomorrow. By the way, do you have
a FTP site where I can put this trace as maybe the file will be too big for
your email...

Thanks for the info.

It would be easiest for me to track down the assertion in fragment.c bug 
if you would use the latest RC version: 


I don't think you'll have any issues with stability of the RC -- it should
be a drop-in replacement for 2.0.  In fact, it may be more stable for you
than 2.0 because I've changed the assertion failure to a warning.

Use the same server-side config that you used before when the assertion
failure occurred, i.e. where you are using fragment and mssfix.  If you
could add "verb 9" and remove "mute"  that would be even better.

If you can compress the log to a zip file, that would be perfect.
