  That's exciting :P Okay, all done.

  New feature: 'directory "/etc/rlinetd.conf" "[^~]$";'

  ie, you supply a regexp to filter the files with. So presumably a RH 
dist would do 'directory "..." "!(rpmorig$|rpmsave$)";' or something
like that.

  I'm actually fairly content with this - the family directive isn't
intended to restrict functionality, only to expand it. If you want to
restrict conneciton to IPv6 only, I'll have some news for you this

  This should not work. This should seriously not work. What compiler
are you using? I can set rlimits here 'til the cows come home, and
they all work correctly. Can you please email me an entire
configuration that doesn't set limits correctly? Maybe one of the
other directives that you have in there causes things to work
differently, which would be why I can't reproduce it... are you
running on some exotic hardware, by any chance?

  Agreed, done.

  Also done.

    k> 6) on *BSD/KAME (www.kame.net) rlinetd should link with

  Okay, configure should now be looking for getaddrinfo in libinet6,
and using it if it's there.
