Subject: ypserv prints: svc_run returned

I am running NetBSD-1.3I/i386 (from early January) with ypserv.
ypserv occasionally exits, with this message:

        svc_run returned

Typically ypserv has been running for three to seven days before
this happens.

svc_run should return only when there is a problem with select(),
and there should be a message "svc_run: - select failed", but I
do not see this message on the screen or in dmesg or in the
messages file.

Has anyone seens this before?

Can anyone suggest how I might go about debugging this problem?

Is there any way to run ypserv in the foreground so that it can
automatically be restarted when it dies?

I do not think I am on this list, please send replies to me.

Thanks for any response at all.
