As a side track of the investigation, I wrote up a few notes of common 
issues seen in igates and other APRS-IS clients. Many of these have been 
fixed many times in various igates, so it might be beneficial to pass this 
on to anyone writing a new igate:

If you have any additions to the list, please let me know.
