Hm, man says that "ignore client-updates;" is what I want to set. However, this is 
already set in the file. I just checked my logs again and now I know why I didn't 
ever notice it before. It seems that happened only from Jan. 8 to 11. Not before 
(as far as log goes back, which is only four weeks), not after. I did the named 
update on Jan. 11, but this seems to be coincidence. And it's been always the same 
client. Go, figure.
