Nemesi, this is present in 2.10.06, lulea-r, ann-arbor, plano, Gothenburq,
and toronto are for sure suseptible (they crashed, heh) and thus the
reason for the latest patch to the repository, nullchan.patch.

It was fixed and patches were submitted to undernet-admins () undernet org 3
or 4 days ago, and since the public posting of it the nullchan.patch was
sent to coder-com () undernet org and the patch was added to the CVS.

It just didn't seem the same bug for how it was reported, now I looked at
it better and understood that it is.

The bug is the same that appears in a piece of code looking
different on Undernet's current codebase, it has been patched
with nullchan.patch at patchlevel 24 of the current source tree
available via cvs on coder-com.undernet.org. Version u2.10.06.24
and following of our codebase are thus immune, anything derivated
from previous versions isn't.

Excuse me I had not the time to warn about it the otehr networks and
to reply correctly at the report here, it was because I was busy
having to patch on the fly our 45 servers while some kid was having
fun disrupting the service, like this one:
