Interactive Unix Rel. 2.2, TCP/IP, X

Hi,

after having upgraded from 2.02 to 2.2 I have observed some strange things,
I want to share:

       -Telnet to ISC 2.2 from NCSA/Telnet 2.2TN no longer works,
        after the "trying to open connection" message nothing else
        happens, no login: prompt appears.
       -Telnet from an NCD-17c X-Terminal does not work (no login:
        prompt appears)
       -C-Kermit (dial out to COM2:/dev/tty01 to a PDP-11/73) at 19200 Baud,
        which worked
        great at 2.02, fails when transferring files at random intervals
       - X11 Rel. 1.1: After some hours of inactivity (4 xterms, xclock, xload,
         xcalc)
         the system dumps core, when moving the mouse to switch on the screen.
       - sendmail/sendmail.cf: after activating the domain name service resolver
         (/etc/resolv.conf), from: addresses are wrong (domain name tacked on
         twice)
       - resolver: system complains about "host not in hosts database"
         but host is:
         /etc/hosts: (part of with line numbers)

(Followups directed to comp.unix.ysv386 where this belongs)

This is a known problem.  Replace telnetd with the 2.02 version and
everything should work.

Cheers!greg
