    Read the diffs. The ip_frag patch is there...it's just sufficiently
    different from the one posted to bugtraq, that it was not tagged as being
    a reversed or already applied patch.

    Most likely. 2.0.32 is lots of little fixes, and went through several
    pre-patches...so hopefully its all fixes and no new bugs.

    zless patch-2.0.32.gz

    From time to time, various people have posted comments on the contents of
    each patch, but I don't know if anyone's currently doing that.
