	Just to reiterate (I realize, in my haste, I forgot to include
a reference or a quote in my earlier message)...

	Here is a quote from Vixie on Slashdot:

] "ISS and ISC worked together on this. ISS found the
] vulns, ISC worked with the vendors, and both of us
] worked with CERT and coordinated the announcements.
] Paul Vixie
] Chairman, ISC"

	Doesn't sound like "released a day early" to me.

	I know Paul posts to this list...  Hi Paul!
