After moving my Sun3 to -current from the Jan 13th sources, I noticed that
would always hang when I did a "shutdown -r now".  I've tracked this down
lpd!  If I kill (HUP or 9) the lpd process, the entire system hangs.  Inetd
(for example) will accept connections, but not spawn a daemon.  I took a
at the lpd source, and didn't see anything out of the ordinary in
certainly nothing that would crash the system in this way.

Has anybody else experienced this?
