One of my servers was indeed not up to date. It was still using glibc-devel-2.4-4
instead of glibc-devel-2.4-8.

On Fedora Core 5, glibc-devel-2.4-8's sys/queue.h file changed from version 8.3
to version 8.5. The macro LIST_INSERT_HEAD changed and got an extra while()
loop around it, without a trailing ";", breaking our call in server.c that
depended on the previous behaviour of the macro expanding to an if statement
that ended with a ";". As a workaround for this glibc bug, I added an ";" to the
LIST_INSERT_HEAD macro call.

We will release 2.4.6rc4 in the next few hours.
