System: NetBSD 3.99.15 NetBSD 3.99.15 (GENERIC-1.696-20060125) #8: Wed Jan 25 04:59:39 ICT 2006 i386

	When compiled (or installed, or whatever, this is not important)
	net/wistumbler says ...

Please take care not to remove the card for the interface you are watching
with wistumbler(1) -- the process will go into a busy loop and consume all
available CPU time.  It can be killed without problems, though.

	This was added in response to a PR I filed in 2003.   At the
	time I also contacted the author of wistumbler.   The bug was
	fixed a day or so later (if that long), and the fixed version
	was in pkgsrc within a week I think...

	That message has been there for the past 30 months or so...
	(needlessly).    (And I have been neglecting to mention it for
	all of that time, apologies.)

	By inspection.
