Ah.  Yes, this should work.

Are you using the default install paths?

(Hey people -- is anybody running the latest CURRENT?  Maybe it's broken.)

Can you run gdb and get a backtrace?

(I don't know if you know gdb, this should start nnrpd, wait for the
crash, and then get the backtrace.  If you want to pass args to nnrpd,
before run you can do "set args" inside gdb.

% gdb nnrpd
(gdb) run
(gdb) bt
