I didn't have time to do a complete update, but I did replace rpc.statd
and rpc.lockd with the ones I built from sources from about 20 May
(3.99.19).  I also made sure to delete the old /var/db/statd.status
file.  Unfortunately rpc.lockd is still dumping core, although the
frequency of occurrance has dropped still lower than it was before.
