Key authentication failure fixed

The problem with bogus "Key authentication failures" has finally
been fixed -- version 2.0.4b1 is available as pre-release.

The bug would lead to apparently random failures in connections between
hosts. The problem was caused by the lack of mutex locks around
the memory allocation of thread-private data. On multi-processor
systems, two threads could receive memory pointers to a different
thread's malloc request, leading to a swapping of IP addresses between

Apologies for the delay in identifying this problem. A new
tar file is available at www.cfengine.org, or ftp.iu.hio.no/pub/cfengine

Final 2.0.4 will be in a couple of weeks,
