Problems with XFS patch and SMP

     Bug#171943 reports that dictd 1.8.0 fails to start with the
following error message:

daemon@amalthea:~$ /usr/sbin/dictd -d nofork
:I: 2535 starting dictd 1.8.0/rf on Linux 2.4.19-xfs Tue Dec  3 23:43:09 2002
dictd (dict_index_open): Cannot mmap index file "/dev/null(dict_index_open) Cannot mmap index file "/dev/nulldict_index_open: No such device
(dict_index_open) dict_index_open: No such device

     I have not experienced any problems with this version in woody,
sarge or sid, using a 2.4.18 kernel, and I have not received any other
similar bug reports.

     The reporter is running a 2.4.19 kernel with the XFS patch and
SMP support.  Are there any known issues with the XFS patch and SMP
support that could contribute to this problem?

     Is anyone running dictd with a 2.4.19 kernel with the XFS patch and
SMP support?
