   CD:SF-LOC says that bugs of the same type, that appear in
   different versions, must be SPLIT.  Therefore this should
   stay separate from CVE-2001-0028.
   Change MISC to CONFIRM.  The comments for version 1.5.4
   say "more sprintf/strncpy fixes" and that's the type of
   changes that were made in lib.c, the code that was listed
   in the Bugtraq post for this CAN.
