Testing note:

Comment 4 Phil Knirsch 2001-08-27 13:01:36 UTC
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

Comment 5 Peter Mottram 2001-08-30 09:36:36 UTC
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?
