I haven't heard back from the author, but he seems to know about
it.  The News link (from http://www.ibiblio.org/tkan/xmcd/) says:

  April 20, 2004: A bug that causes the cda utility to crash upon
  startup has been identified. It will be fixed in xmcd 3.3.2 which
  is due to be released very soon, and will supercede xmcd 3.3.0
  as well as the 3.3.1 patch on UNIX-like platforms.

I'll keep an eye out for its release.
