another nnrpd issue with 2.3 beta

I ran 2.3 snapshots before it went into beta with no troubles, since it
went beta, I cannot get nnrpd to work with my readers.conf.  It always
dumps core if the first thing it sees is "mode reader".  Of course all
newsreaders except one that I know of do mode reader first.
However, if the reader does authinfo first, all is well.

I have tried 4 versions since 2.3 went beta, and am currently at:
	20000606 prerelease

Here is an excerpt:

 pts/4 1:10pm Mon,Jul 03 37 -> telnet nntp.sprintip.com 119
Trying 208.25.104.26...
Connected to <server>.
Escape character is '^]'.
200 <server> InterNetNews NNRP server INN 2.3.0 (20000606 prerelease) ready 
(posting ok).
mode reader
Connection closed by foreign host.

And here is a successful one:

 pts/4 1:21pm Mon,Jul 03 38 -> telnet <server> 119
Trying 208.25.104.26...
Connected to <server>.
Escape character is '^]'.
200 <server> InterNetNews NNRP server INN 2.3.0 (20000606 prerelease) ready 
(posting ok).

authinfo user <user here>
381 PASS required
authinfo pass <password here>
281 Ok
mode reader
200 <server> InterNetNews NNRP server INN 2.3.0 (20000606 prerelease) ready 
(posting ok).
quit
205 .
Connection closed by foreign host.

I have the simplest readers.conf I can contrive:

auth all {
        auth: "ckpasswd -s"
}


auth "localhost" {
        # Allow reading/posting from the local host.
        hosts: "stdin,localhost,127.0.0.1"
        default-domain: "unix.sprint.net"
}

access default {
        newsgroups: !*
}
access full {
        users: *
        newsgroups: *
}

Please let me know if I have messed this up.  I have been pulling my hair
out for weeks.

Thanks!
