Re: xntpd fails

It's been mentioned on linux-kernel - a network layer change in 1.3.58
or so - there's a patch to xntpd to fix it (it has to do with bind on
INADDR_ANY,port succeeding and getting traffic from a previous bind on
localaddr,port... the kernel fix closes a potential security hole, but
xntpd already compensated for it and now fails. I don't have the
actual patch handy, sorry...
