Punk Buster/Linux

Seems to me many people here and in forums ve been blaming PunkBuster for shedding players because perhaps their pb client did not auto update. My server has the symptoms sometimes, players complaining about getting dropped, and sometimes many players. Every once in a while the server sheds most or all of the players, but the game goes on, when you rejoin the same game is in progress.

However, I never see any messages about pb violations or timeouts when this happens. In fact, I Never see anything from PB after the connection msgs ever. 

It started happening to me so I went to evenbalance.com and manually updated my pb client, and then it seemed better.

Has anyone else noticed if Punk Buster is auto updating the linux server?
Should we be manually updating it?
Is there a way to check the PB version? I dug around in the pb directory and nothing there really seemed to indicate a plain version number.
