Have you tried newer glibc versions resp. newer rsh packages? There are a few
minor bugfixes that might be related in the newest rsh packages in rawhide.
Read ya, Phil
updated glibc + glibc-common to 2.2.4-8 with both rsh packages to 0.17-5 but all
still as gloomy & non-functional as ever. Any further thoughts?
Close as inactive bug
