This readers.conf worked in a Jan 4 snapshot, but causes nnrpd to
drop core in a Mar 14 snapshot.

auth "outside" {
	key: "outside"
	hosts: "*"
	auth: "ckpasswd -s"
}

access "outside" {
	key: "outside"
	newsgroups: "*"
	users: "*"
	access: "Read Post"
}

Something has stepped on the contents of success_auth in perm.c.
