Shortly after I sent the above email I created a 5 meg file of
stuff from /dev/urandom on each of my nodes and inserted them. Within a
minute they were both able to find and download each others files. So I
must have just had bad luck the first time.

I have noticed another interesting problem: During my unsuccessful
attempts to downlod files I ended up with a lot of corrupted files but
with the proper size in my directory of files to share which then got
reinserted when I ran a script to insert my own content, contributing to
the spread of broken files. I think the download client should put files
in another tmp directory until they are 100% downloaded and then moved
somewhere else to indicate they are complete so there is no chance of
incomplete files accidentally being indexed.
