I agree. I also experienced insurmountable problems (wish I'd documented
them - don't ask!) trying to use "tickets" / "distributed network
transparency" across multiple platforms. Everything seemed to work

thing that worked was if I used exclusively Linux 32-bit machines. I was
using the versions with the "new" ticketing system throughout, so it was a
OTOH, seeing the magic of network transparency in action, say assigning a
variable on one machine and seeing it update on the Inspector in another,
