The discussion about the fact mountd (statd) no longer accept connections from
unknown IP address (similar to other system daemon) due to a "fix" in the tcp
wrapper code is at:

   https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=448898
and
   https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=480420 
    
Through some side bar discussion it been suggested an update to
the man page is probably need (which I agree) and maybe a flag
of some sort to allow unknown IP address access. I must admit, I'm
a bit hesitant to do the later, since I don't think its a good idea
to allow unknown client access any system daemon... 

steved.
