My turn to agree with Gregor.

Also I should mention that this may not even be a vulnerability. Talk to
us, discuss what you see happening. Denial of service problems usually
exist with every service on every IP network - maybe it's something
like that. Maybe the problem can be patched by a casual C hacker and can 
be fixed on this list immediately, even if Balazs isn't around.

Share with us.
