We cant realistically offer support for modified daemons - whilst you 
may not have done anything directly in the viscinity of the core, its 
possible other things you have done have contributed to it.

Ive had a look at where it cored, and I cant see anything obvious wrong 
with the code in CVS.  From what I can see, theres an invalid 
client/hostname on the hostname hash.  This hash is quite heavily used - 
every local client will have lookups done on this hash, which contains 
all users on the network.  Given 1.3-1 has been about for a good few 
months, if there was a bug there I wouldve expected it to have shown up 
very quickly indeed.

Im more inclined to think this is your local modifications than anything 
else, id suggest trying unmodified code.
