In addition, there's an error in canohost.c/getremotehostname(), that
the fix for 1179 introduced (to wit, the variable ntop is uninitialized
at the point of call to check_ip_options).  I've got to run off to a
meeting, but I'll try to post a patch later today.

Subject: IP options


I'm seeing something similar to bug 1179
(https://bugzilla.mindrot.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1179), even with the
reordered IP options check.


For some reason, getsockopt is returning an IP options of length 2,
value 00 00.


Would Mark Weindling's original patch
(https://bugzilla.mindrot.org/attachment.cgi?id=1105) break anything if
I incorporated it?
