Okay, I put the config at ftp://macduff.dhs.org/pub/misc/config-2.2.16.
Seems like the thread patch might be the problem. That leaves me with a
choice: pull it from CVS, or leave it until it gets fixed. Since 2.2.16
hasn't proved to be very stable anyway, I'm tempted to leave it until we
can debug it properly.
