Has anyone but me experienced that the new inetd with libwrap does no
longer handle internal services, i.e. services, where inetd itself
generates the response?
I first noticed this because I have two systems, where I occasionally
adjust one's time from the other with a
rdate -a machinename
command. Now this causes inetd to dump core within a strncpy call from
It seems to affect all internal services handled by inetd (daytime
as mentioned above, but also echo and chargen).
I have seen this on NetBSD/i386 and NetBSD/mac68k.
