i discovered that one of our ftp servers core dumps every time you
upload a file to it.  yuck.  i rebuilt wu-ftpd (academ) with debugging
and managed to get this stack trace:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x80750da in ()
(gdb) bt
#0  0x80750da in ()
#1  0x8089060 in _GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_ ()
#2  0x806af80 in sprintf ()
#3  0x4bd0 in store (name=0x3d030 "reviews", mode=0x93c0 "w", unique=0)
    at ftpd.c:1613
#4  0xa4c0 in yyparse () at ftpcmd.y:270
#5  0x2072 in main (argc=0, argv=0xefbfde8c, envp=0xefbfde9c) at ftpd.c:555

unfortunately i'm not nearly enough of a hacker to figure out what all
that stuff means.  if someone could explain it to me, that would be
swell.  even better, if someone knows how to fix it, that would be
more swell.

this is under (gulp) 2.1.5, if that helps... which leads to my second
question: anybody have any experience upgrading a live machine that is
remotely located?  am i insane for even thinking about trying to
attempt it?  what should i watch out for?
