This release of the IANA /etc/{protocols,services} Hint contains
a more robust services parser which fixes several errors including
the commenting out of all entries over 4000 which was reported by
Fire Dragon <fdragon at saturn.fdragon.org>.

This is an urgent (not quite critical) upgrade.

The changelog is:
More robust services filter. This is a recommended upgrade.
It fixes a bug reported by Fire Dragon <fdragon at saturn.fdragon.org>.

Timothy, i've attempted to supply a changelog entry suitable for
use as the cvs commit log message. I would appreciate it if you
could use it since "Updates by author" is somewhat uninformative.

cheers,
Seth W. Klein
