The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
A Computer Academic Underground advisory describes the consequences of
imwheel's handling of the process ID file (PID file) :
imwheel exclusively uses a predictably named PID file for management
of multiple imwheel processes. A race condition exists when the -k
command-line option is used to kill existing imwheel processes. This
race condition may be used by a local user to Denial of Service
another user using imwheel, lead to resource exhaustion of the host
system, or append data to arbitrary files.
