        This maintenance release fixes some looser ends in the last
        published release, 3.2.3.  There's one more important bugfix here,
        which is triggered by PCRE newer than 8.12.

        * Fixed build problems on Solaris & AIX.
        * A bug was found in the pcre implementation for subst(). If the
          "global" flag is specified and pcre returns an error, an infinite
          loop is created, consuming memory in the process. It is triggered
          by PCRE 8.12, but could potentially affect older versions too.
        * Fixed a potential use of uninitialized memory in the configuration
          file parser, no bug was triggered but gcc 4.6 reported it via a

        Other changes:
        * Fixed most (but not all) compilation warnings when compiling with
          gcc 4.6
