Description lionel.cons 1999-05-18 14:44:46 UTC
It seems that in.rexecd is buggy and hangs, it can
be reproduced on a base Red Hat 6.0 box with a simple
	rexec -l user -p pass localhost date

Doing an strace on it, we see that the rexec client sends
the port number as the first "argument":
   write(3, "1716\0", 5)                   = 5
and waits for the socket to be created
   accept(4,  <unfinished ...>
while the rexec daemon reads the second argument (user)
*before* creating the socket...

As a workaround, add -a to the rexec command line.
