Just for your info, you're right, I was not carefull enough to verify what's
happening and started writing too soon. The program is communicating happily
with a lot of servers, downloads a plenty of files... and then it writes that
the connection doesn't work. It seems that either it gets something wrong
from one of the servers, or it crashes for another reason and the message
is disinformative. I've captured its net activities by Wireshark and we are
going to compare them with the log gathered when it runs on windows.
  With regards, Pavel Troller
