 Hmm, while I get what you mean, what is "^A-F" specifically?

 Anyway, this may be true -- probably the server is still waiting for
following requests to come.  A timeout might be a good thing to add.  
Unfortunately I don't have time to work on mopd ATM.  It would be good to
do a serious rewrite and I plan to do that in the future.  No established 
plan, though.

 Another problem which is already known is mopd dying when one of
interfaces it's listening on goes down.
