Finally, I'm quite sure of this: the bug is in Sun's RPC code.
Investigations show Linux, FreeBSD, SunOS, System V and NeXTstep machines
are affected, which means we've got a _big_ problem here.
If that's the case, then any ports of these utilities running on Windows NT
would also exhibit the same problem - we're all running off of pretty much
the same Sun ONC RPC code.
