The code is identical between FreeBSD and DFBSD, but putting a man from
my 4.8-S box on my DF box fixes the problem, whilst putting a man from
my DF box on my 4.8-S box also showed the problem.

And it's dynamically compiled.  I've diff'd nm -D output, cpp output of
the code.  There are no differences whatsoever.

truss, ktrace, or strace were no help, maybe because of the setuid,
don't know, but it never traced to interesting points and just stopped.

I have totally lost it (guess I can blame the current heatwave as well).

Ideas/comments welcome.
