Stability updates

Starting with FahMon 2.3.2, several pieces of data crucial to FahMon's operation will now be obtained directly from queue.dat, since this is the only reliable source for these data.

To this end, some of the core code from qd has been ported into FahMon to access data from the queue in a tried and trusted fashion.

My thanks go to Dick Howell and Bas Couwenberg for this code.

With the introduction of qd into FahMon, the messages windows now displays the following licence text upon startup:

FahMon  is licenced under the GNU GPL v2
Copyright (C) 2003-2007 Francois Ingelrest

FahMon contains code from qd, also licenced under the GNU GPL v2
Copyright (C) 2002-2005 Richard P. Howell IV.
Copyright (C) 2005-2007 Sebastiaan Couwenberg

The overall upshot of these changes is that FahMon should be much more stable, and no longer crash or mangle machine names when monitoring large numbers of clients.
