When upgrading from to I've noticed that trying to
do "cvs info -b" now segfaults on my gentoo/gnu/linux box.

backtrace yields:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0xb7eab249 in CZeroconf::BrowseForService ()

Doing cvs -t -t -t info -b yields:
01:13:29:   -> wrap_add(*.zip -kb, 0, 0, 0, 0)
01:13:29:   -> wrap_add(*.Z -kb, 0, 0, 0, 0)

01:13:29:   -> LibraryAccess::Load failed for
'/usr/lib/cvsnt/mdns/mdns/mini.la', error = No such file or directory

Since this is a client-only system, there is no /etc/cvsnt/PServer
present... I presume this file is only applicable when running as a server
an that this error is not an error.

The Load failed is weird, since the library is actually in 
but its trying to be loaded from:
