Yes and no.  The errors have been there since the beginning of time,
but I actually noticed them doing review of our implementation wrt the
new standard.  For example, the System V IPC implementation uses a
data structure bogusly copied bitwise from SVR3, which only had 16-bit
[ug]id_t's.  The patch I sent out before BSDcon contains a number of
things noted in this regard.

The other thing that we need to do is to hide the DB 1.85 library
that's currently in libc, so that it doesn't prevent third-party
applications from making full use of DB 3.x (when installed).  This
will involve renaming all of the public identifiers in the DB library,
and converting the libc code to use the internal names.
