The issue is that my public media folder has symbolic links that pointed
outside the configured "media_dir".  There is a new configuration item
"wide_links" which defaults to "no".  Setting it to "yes" and restarting
'minidlnad' solves the problem.

So, minidlna on netbsd-9 does not suffer the buffer overflow problem
when indexing the configured "media_dir"s that occurs on netbsd-8.  I
can't upgrade my file server to netbsd-9 as the siisata card/driver that
forms part of my RAID fails to identify the disks.
