Description Curtis Doty 2003-09-22 12:16:39 EDT
Description of problem:
During startup, the sed cruft that creates the list of timeservers does not 
properly parse a valid ntp.conf.

How reproducible:
use the full server syntax in ntp.conf:
server      minpoll 7       maxpoll 12

This is untested, but all that sed madness could probably be replaced with 
something a bit more simple and direct like this:

awk '/[[:blank:]]+127\./{next}/^[[:blank:]]*(server|peer)[[:blank:]]+/{print 
$2}' ntp.conf

Also, upon review, it looks to me like you have another bug. You don't allow 
any host with 127 followed by any character in its name.
