To be "fair" this is most likely the version scanner causing the
NetWare problem. Still doesn't excuse them but Nmap's doing quite a

Well, to be fair ... I first thought that the failed module
(rcmdsrv.nlm) belongs to Novell. But now it seems that it comes with
Legato's NetWorker backup software ...
Apart from that ..., it is indeed the version scan option which causes
the problem. No version scan, no abend ...
