[ntp:questions] RC freezes at startup

I compiled ntp-dev-4.2.1p247-RC on a Linux Debian Woody where
ntp-4.2.0b-rc1 runs OK. At startup, the daemon soon freezes: No reply to
any requests, and nothing more in syslog (past the first startup
messages). When started with -d, the daemon repeatably shows normal
startup lines, until the 1st network packet is received. At this precise
moment begins a fast never ending storm of this repeated line:

| receive: at 3<- mode 4 code 1 auth 0

The storm is virtual, though: The network saw one packet only. is a server declared iburst in ntp.conf. If removed, the
storm will start with another packet, perhaps a peer:

| receive: at 14<- mode 1 code 1 keyid 00000001 len 48 mac 20 auth 1

Or sometimes 2 lines are repeated:

| receive: at 5<- mode 3 code 3 auth 0
| transmit: at 5> mode 4

Back to RC1 restores normal operations.
