Your first "fact" is demonstrably incorrect and has been shown to be so.
Indeed, you seem to have backed away from your claim that avahi-daemon
is the cause of your difficulties. The only place you lead people is up

happened is more likely to bring results; making attacking software a
lifestyle choice gets a bit boring after a while.
