After looking at this I had a hunch - the collector machine is 32-bit,
the sender 64-bit. 

I reverse the sender/collector and I don't get this error anymore.
The machine architecture is not representative of the intended final
deployment, just the available machines I was using to test.

So now the bad news is that I still do not see events passing from
sender to collector. This may be to an incorrect assumption on my part.
I assume that all events on the sender make it to the collector. Is this
true always? I send in a forced event (on the sender):

[root fryspc audisp]#  auditctl -m TEST
[root fryspc audisp]# ausearch -ts recent -i | grep TEST
type=USER msg=audit(09/12/2008 18:34:34.930:126) : user pid=4866 uid=root auid=root ses=11 subj=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:auditctl_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 msg='TEST: exe=/sbin/auditctl (hostname=?, addr=?, terminal=pts/2 res=success)' 

But I cannot see this event on the collector.

The good news is that I see the connection on both ends (using port 1237=tsdos, lsof results):
auditd     9422      root   11u     IPv4              55889                 TCP comms:tsdos390->fryspc:55303 (ESTABLISHED)
audisp-re 4846      root    3u     IPv4      26741                  TCP fryspc:55303-> (ESTABLISHED)

Should I see this event, and if so, do you have any idea as to why I do
not? I also have the same thing from another 64-bit sender.
