    However, the license of Seyon doesn't permit us to provide a fix, now
    is the Seyon author responsive, nor do we have a patch, nor do we know

         I notice from reading the SGI announcement that their problem is
         a root exploit because of a setuid Seyon.  The Seyon we ship is
         not setuid, so I doubt we'll have a serious problem.
