Of course, that's why I mentioned it. I wondered if there are
other hints and known mishaps to look for. But I don't know yet
if GIADDR is used in the configuration or now, see below.

Regrettably that server is managed by someone else and I haven't
got a copy of the configuration yet.

Since the someone else are very busy and I really depend on them
to get this fixed, I am trying to collect hints and to list
things ofr him to look at to help him, thus the guesswork nature
of my query, sorry about that, please bear with me.
