I see no crashes in the DCC server, dccd, on a 32-bit FreeBSD 7.2
system I built today for the purpose.
However, that program counter was enough of a clue to find a bug
that ought to cause crashes.

I've released version 1.3.115/2.3.115 with what I hope is a fix.

An easy way to build with symbols and line numbers is to use
updatedcc, as in:

   /var/dcc/updatedcc -e DBGFLAGS=-g

Updatedcc can also be used to back off to a previous version, as in:

   /var/dcc/updatedcc -V 1.3.113

However, with the fix in 1.3.115, I hope neither of those are needed now.
