SubjectRe: in.ntalkd locking up.

I had the same problem back when I worked at an ISP that used
Linux-based systems. My solution was to disable ntalkd. After people
screamed for a few months, I finally gave in and added in resource limits
to ntalkd. Recompiling helped a bit. I'm really curious to find out what
the actual problem is and what the solutions is.
