A fair while ago I consulted debian-legal on the public domain license
and got the polite reply from Glenn Maynard stating that problems
might exist with it not disclaiming warranty.

Further discussion with upstream created this short license:

   Netbiff may be redistributed in any form without restriction.
   Netbiff comes with NO WARRANTY.

Since this is a new license I'm asking debian-legal for completeness if
there could be any problems with this licensing? It should be DFSG free
as far as I can understand, right?

Nope. You are not allowing modifications and distribution of modified versions, nor copying. Try:

Netbiff's copyright holders grant you the right to copy, redistribute, modify and distribute modified copies of Netbiff, without any restriction.
Netbiff comes with NO WARRANTY.

This should be enough.
