I think its been this way for a long time.

We fixed ours, I can send you the patched version.

However, the way we fixed ours doesnt timeout sometimes and so a port thats
open but never generates the correct responce stops any other ports
monitored from being tested below this (our solution was to put such
dangerous systems at the botom of our portmon.conf file, and to setup the
last port tested as a bogus Warning only test vs localhost port (something
unused) so that we can see portmon is getting down to the end of the file ;)

A horrid kludge. Want it? :)

Anyone got something better?

PS Mozbot w/nocol support is not quite done yet ;) I will update y'allz
soon. I expect Ill be ready around the 2nd week of jan if anyone cares.
