     Nope, no other software inbetween in the case where this is a problem. 
But even if something were inbetween shouldn't it STILL add a Path header if
none exists?  How would nnrpd know if something came directly from the client
or via other software?  But in the case of where we are having the problem it
is with end clients talking to nnrpd.
