Freeze exception: iaxmodem 1.1.1~dfsg-2


iaxmodem 1.1.1~dfsg-2 fixes a bug in the way the daemon drops
privileges; the code called setegid() after seteuid(), causing the
setegid() call to fail leaving the daemon running under the original

This is the only change in this version.

iaxmodem (1.1.1~dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/01_seteuid_setegid_ordering.dpatch:
    + Added; call setegid() before seteuid() when dropping privileges, otherwise
      setegid() will fail once we're no longer root.
