Hi Steve,

You wrote that inetd invokes cvsnt.  Can you post the relevant
inetd.conf line in case that has anything to do with it?

Also, you mentioned that you csup'd the 8.0-RELEASE source tree, and you
are now running -p2.  That seems fine to me, since you are tracking a
release branch + bug fixes.

Can you verify that this sequence of events occurred?

1. Installed some version of 8.0-RELEASE and cvsnt 2.5.03.something.
cvsnt worked fine.

2. Installed 8.0-RELEASE-p2 (new kernel + userland) sources, rebuilt
kernel and userland and rebooted. cvsnt 2.5.03.something continued to
work fine.

3. Portupgraded cvsnt to 2.5.04.something and now it crashes upon any

Let me know if the steps occurred in a different order than that.

Thank you,
