Send bug reports to bugs at  If it cored, please
include a gdb backtrace and a copy of your config.h.


The best way to get a backtrace of the core is to follow this sequence of
1.  Change to the directory where the core file is
2.  Run gdb on the binary and the core file.  With an unmodified Hybrid-6,
    an example command line is below (in the /usr/local/ircd directory)
    $ gdb ./ircd ircd.core
3.  At the "(gdb)" prompt, enter the command "bt"
4.  Save the output of the backtrace command and send it to
    bugs at
5.  Be sure to save the ircd binary and the core file in a safe place in
    case the developers need to look deeper than a backtrace provides.
