SuSE tends to patch the same version # that was released on the CD's so
as not to break dependencies. So the .22 version that SuSE has in the
updates directory has been patched, but indeed 1.2.5i ( was the
fix) and anything at below .25 is vunerable. So in a sense the
person who suggested getting .27 wasn't wrong. Besides a quick
./configure --prefix=/usr and you have a new version over the old and it
has many bug fixes..since the 1.3.X series is a development series and
if one is going to run the development version..keeping up with bug
fixes is a good thing..other wise why leave the stable release of
1.2.5.X :)

That's a question to SuSE: why did the leave the stable 1.2.5 and
included development 1.3.22 in 7.3 ?
