        In formalizing our analysis of the secure W3 and gopher daemons
relative to denial of service attacks, we found some potentials for
abuse and made enhancements to prevent various forms of denial of
service via leaving open channels, creating too many requests resulting
in excessive file pointers leading to OS failures during allocation of
sparse resources, and other such things.  These fixes are available in
the new on-line version.
