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?
If it's any consolation, NetBSD now (as of the 15th) has a fix for this
problem in-tree (a pullup for the impending 1.5.1 release is in the queue),
and we only found out about it on the 14th.
