104397 now, the same as blockchain explorer shows:

http://www.cryptocoinexplorer.com:3750/chain/Terracoin?count=60&hi=104397

Note that difficulty can't drop under 5255.042 since it is hardcoded value in new wallets.

 Shocked
So when miners run away, it won't go lower and you'll be mining at a big loss and/or coin dies?

This version is obviously bogus: the resulting binary behaves like the newest fork (it orphaned several blocks).

Sorry, a bit new to all this.. I thought you meant that the resulting version was "bogus" and not the correct version.

Output of getinfo shows "blocks" : 104383 .. that's the correct block number people are getting on the windows binary?

http://dustcoin.com/mining shows we're up to block 104380 .. which doesn't match.
104397 now.

Yeah, it looks like dustcoin is behind on just more than TRC. The FRC block count is off also.

The PPC count is right, I do know he polls PPC from cryptocoinexplorer. I do not remember if he polls trc and frc too.

I could go look at the logs if it continues to be an issue.

What are the potential implications of this?

If the network hash rate gets too low, blocks will take a long time to solve. This has the effect of slowing down all the transactions.

I presume that the hardcoded minimum difficulty is done based on the typical hashrate seen throughout the lifetime of TRC network, i.e. around 30~40 G h/s from diehard supporters.  The inability to go lower would significantly reduce the problem of huge numbers of orphan/invalid blocks seen at really low difficulty.  Hopefully, this would enable pools like Coinotron to bring back the TRC pool and make the network more secure.
