Description of problem:
I have a Red-Hat Linux with mars installed.
I had no problems in the last 18 months.
Today, all the users cannot use this computer remotly. 
When I did ps - ef | more, I couldn'd see the nwserv and nwbind.
I rebooted it, and after that, I tried 
   /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/S99mars-nwe  start
and after a moment I does down again.

the file /var/log/mars_nwe.log showns
NWB 0 7: PANIC!!
NWB 0 !!! SIG_SEGV !!! ncp_sequence = 7
NWS 0  0:write_wdata: Invalid argument to NWBIND

Have you installed any new software and checked wether the logfiles/disks might
be full? There is no logical reason why mars shouldn't work anymore...

Read ya, Phil

Thanks for the bug report.
However, Red Hat no longer include and maintains mars-nwe.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some
older releases, and if you believe this bug is interesting to them,
please report the problem in the bug tracker at:
