[sldev] DenyTrustedCircuit?

So I'm trying to write my own client to SL.
My first obstacle is in receiving data about objects in front of my
avatar... but...
My client is based off the semi-dated libsecondlife java port of

I've used SLProxy from libsecondlife to trace the packets between the
normal SL Client and SL.
And I have my own client doing practically the identical sequence of
packets (not exactly but seems close enough for horseshoes).

But at one point I'm receiving a DenyTrustedCircuit packet from SL.
(The SLProxy trace of the main SLClient doesn't see this packet.)

1) Why am I getting this packet?
2) I believe I am supposed to return a CreateTrustedCircuit in response
but what is the Digest element of that packet supposed to be a digest
of? (I'm assuming MD5).

3) Can someone provide a quick description of what some basic expected
packet back and forth is between the SLClient and SL and anything else
I'm probably missing?
