So running 0.3.24 for first time because of enhanced block downloadability ... after 50 minutes got no new blocks but still collecting addresses that I have absolutely no interest in collecting.

Is there a setting to forget about downloading addresses and download some blocks instead?

Downloading addresses?

You only create addresses. They are not downloaded from the network.

I am not running the new GUI version yet. I am running bitcoind 0.3.23

Does it say you are connected to 30,000 clients? Or is there now a section for "collected addresses"?

Still quite confused.

The network maintains a list of addresses of operational clients. If a new node needs that list, you are supposed to be able to provide it.

or else what?

What is the penalty for not keeping those addresses locally?  (Assuming I write a client that does not keep the list).

There is an economic incentive to download the blockchain but there is none to download a list of IP addresses (which could grow into the millions) of which only 8-150 will ever be needed for most clients.

I'd have to look at what the consequences are. I suppose in principle you could simply not send addresses. You would be compromising the stability of the network.

Keep the 500 most recent then.
