this release has fixed one of the problems that I wrote about 
yesterday (subject = two bugs with aix ... help please!!!) : 
non-interactive sessions via protocol 1 no longer hang after the 
completion of the remote command.  Thank you!!!

However, the other problem that I wrote about, the zero-length write, 
still exists in all its glory; the patch that I came up with doesn't 
fix the problem with this relase, and it actually causes the other 
problem to reappear.

The zero-length write bug hits us pretty hard, as we have several 
applications that cause the problem to manifest on a frequent basis.

Can someone at least explain to me what is going on there, and if 
possible, suggest a fix?
