Bug#58520: rexec segfaults

I just had a look at:

Package: rexec (debian/main)
Maintainer: Herbert Xu <herbert@debian.org>
  58520  rexec segfaults

The segfault occurs within rexec() when called with either
user or passwd set to NULL. There was a patch in 1.4 to work
around this. Herbert has comments in 1.5-2 indicating he
removed this intentionally because it is a libc6 problem.

It seems a shame to lose rexec to the "Bug Horizon" if this
doesn't get reassigned in time. A simple workaround is to
us -n to force user/passwd prompt "rexec -n localhost ls".
