Hi Danny,

We finally tested the fix.

ISIC sent totally 1 000 000 000 000 packets at a rate of approx 15000 kbps.
Result: No significant increase in the process' memory usage, and no other
instable behavior. The conclusion is therefore that the problem is fixed.
Thank you for your support!

We would be glad if someone can indicate when there will be new NTP
"Production" release with this fix included.

Again, thank you for your excellent support.

Kind regards
Geir Guldstein

The fixes are in the latest tarball. I would appreciate it if you could
pull it and test it against ISIC and see if the problem is fixed.

Please let me know one way or the other.
