After scanning ports with nmap as a normal user without any paramaters, identd crashes with this in

Sep 14 22:45:28 psychedelic identd[26006]: main: accept. errno = 53
Sep 14 22:45:28 psychedelic 0 , 0 : ERROR : UNKNOWN-ERROR^M

The parameters for /usr/libexec/identd are "-b -l -e -unobody -gkmem", I'm not running inetd. I really
have a hard time believing anyone hasn't noticed a bug this fatal, but I can't think of any local
configuration causing this.
