I have no idea (yet) who and why decided that port 65534 is so sweet, =
but it sure does remind me of the case of Rui Paolo =

Wikipedia-certified division by zero in ping.
Additionally, NetBSD syslogd is only bugged with the -s option. Do note =
that for example FreeBSD's syslogd -s works as expected.
