Oh, hell ... back when I fixed this, I hadn't caught the CVS religion yet, so
of course I can't give you diffs from the original :-( If I recall, in
tc.func.c, the signal handler psignal() only got called once (they use alarm()
in remotehost() to timeout gethostbyaddr() ... turns out that it does a couple
of calls and you need alarm to work more than once), and you need to chop out
the code that disables the signal handler.
