Re: Buffer overflow prevention

  ProPolice is not magical, though. There are plenty of cases where it is
totally inefficient. To illustrate a very common one :

[snip oflow of 5-byte buffer]

This particular case ``works'' because, by design, propolice will not
attempt to protect structures smaller than 16 bytes.

This can be changed by a simple gcc recompilation... and it's probably
worth doing.
