The Win32 executable that Jeff sent all of us for testing had a bug
in it that kept "resp:" from being recognized as a keyword. After he
corrected that, I also noticed the keyword had no impact (eg, rst_snd
was not sent).

Not missing a thing. Jeff was going to debug the code this weekend. If 
his weekend is/was as busy as mine, it will probably be a few days 
before we hear anything.
