Subjectx86_64 bad frame in signal deliver
	Hello, all!

I have got the following messages on my FTP server running x86_64:

proftpd[16913]: segfault at 0000007fbf7ff170 rip 000000000041ecaa rsp 0000007fbf7ff160 error 6

proftpd[18200]: segfault at 0000007fbf7ff170 rip 000000000041ecaa rsp 0000007fbf7ff160 error 6

Does that mean that proftpd segfaulted inside user space (and is thus
buggy or even insecure) - as address rip:41ecaa suggests, or is it some kind
of kernel bug?

The /proc/<pid of proftpd>/maps on my system suggests that
0x41ecaa is a valid code address:

/proc/9878/maps:00400000-00460000 r-xp 00000000 09:00 765659 /usr/sbin/proftpd
/proc/9878/maps:0055f000-00568000 rw-p 0005f000 09:00 765659 /usr/sbin/proftpd
/proc/9878/maps:00667000-00668000 rw-p 00067000 09:00 765659 /usr/sbin/proftpd
Kernel is 2.6.5 on Fedora Core 1/x86_64.

Thanks,

-Yenya
