Rather than gdb-ing the corefile, I just rebuilt ftp with -g. The backtrace is
attached as gdb_bt_01.txt. Looks like the free() in cmdscanner() at main.c:333
is the culprit.

OK. Unfortunately, I don't have time right now to add printfs(), but thought
that perhaps the above backtrace might be useful to you in its own right. 
Let me know if you're able to make any headway with it. If not, next week
I should have time to instrument it with some printfs.

OK, thanks.

Mysterious, because my fetchmail log shows no record of any transaction at or
around that time of day.  But I'll email you privately more about this to
avoid any further email addresses and MX names appearing in the ML.
