I am running -pre10-ac2 on one box - but also
the preemptive patch - are you running that?

On another box, I'm running -pre10aa4, which
also includes the low latency mini patch.

I also follow the q3a benchmark closely, and
RtCW as well. (The enemy is weakened!)

-ac + preempt and -aa both seem OK here, but
I prefer -aa since I use tux.
