Description Benjamin Kahn 1999-05-07 20:53:31 UTC
I got these messages while trying to connect to someone via
YTALK.  They were on the local network with messages on.
They couldn't connect back to me, and this was the garbage
in the syslogs.  I believe they were using a vanilla redhat
5.2.  The logs are from my machine (vanilla redhat 6.0)

Comment 1 Benjamin Kahn 1999-05-29 15:55:59 UTC
This is really an annoying problem.  Can we have a status update?  I
just tried it on another redhat 6.0 box with the same problem.  I had
to kill the process because the xterm froze.  TALK works, however.
