So it hasn't changed since my windows-implementation of the server-part.

Noticed something odd: if I create an ext2 filesystem on an 10010624
bytes file, then mount it, then do echo bli > mountpoint/bli ; echo 
test > mountpoint/test, then umount and fsck -f on that /dev/ndb0-file,
I get frequently an unattached inode error.
Both with your nbd-server as well as my own (simple) implementation.
I use your nbd-client.
