When we released the new IPv6 improvements (Nmap 5.52.IPv6.Beta2) on
Wednesday we received tons of attention on the social networks, but
very few bug reports.  Maybe that means it is working great for
everyone, or perhaps it means that more people retweeted it than
actually try it.  Is anyone here using the IPv6 suppport and can you
post a description of how it is working for you?
Since you asked :) It's not IPv6 related, but IPv4. New Nmap is 
crashing on OS detection.

QUITTING!

This is my fault. I recently removed some piece of code from osscan2.cc
that appeared to be dead. Although I tested it three times, obviously I
was wrong and the code is actually run in certain situations. Revision
23917 should fix the problem. Vlatko, could you please test if it does?

Vlatko, can you get a stack trace from the assertion failure? I asked
Luis to remove the relevant code and I too am surprised that it is being
called.
