Er -- I didn't say it was a showstopper, I said that I'd like a few more
days to look into it. If there are more urgent matters that would be
resolved by a new release, that's fine too. Just thought I would chime in

nessus is an open source security scanner. http://www.nessus.org .
I'll mail the list with by debugging progress on tuesday or so.
