Nice to see a renderd patch. You're not the first one creating an OSX
renderd, but I don't recall who that was. What I do remember is that he
couldn't test it because the OSX blender wasn't released yet then ;-)

The renderd CVS repository is still not online yet. So until that's done
there's no repository to commit it into.
Maybe you'd like to volunteer ? ;-)

Hmm. this could be caused by the scanner being quite blunt in searching
for servers (or clients, was this a server or a client ?)
Try disabling the scanner and use the telnet interface to connect the
client to the server (or vice versa ;-)

Ehh, there shouldn't be a window. Blender is used in render-only mode.
Which is most probably broken now. Try 'blender -b' it should end with
'Blender quit' immediately, without generating a window.
