He's not fine -- a daemon is dumping core. That shouldn't happen --
ever. Sure, maybe it's bad RAM, as someone suggested. Alternatively,
there's another bug -- and possibly a security bug -- lurking in
telnetd. Frankly, that strikes me as more likely.
Yes, he's got the latest fixes in. But that doesn't mean that no more
fixes are needed.
