I must say that I gasped and had to wipe sweat from my
forehead when I read, tested and could confirm this
The OpenBSD-team has known about this for -6- days (15th of June),
and they haven't been able to come up with atleast a temporary fix?
I can't find anything on errdata / security warnings,
what's up with that?
