Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

The monotone developers report :

Running 'mtn ''' or 'mtn ls ''' doesn't cause an internal error
anymore. In monotone 0.48 and earlier this behavior could be used to
crash a server remotely (but only if it was configured to allow
execution of remote commands).
