Correction: looks like there may be a patch. Got a note
from Lew Yobs (Lew.Yobs@Corp.Sun.COM). According to
the message, the bug is "#1054748 ftp, ping dump core
when connecting to a host with multiple DNS A records."
Sounds familiar. The patch to get is 100266 or 100267
depending on whether you are doing encryption (?) or not.

P.S. Anybody have this one ready for anonymous ftp?
