Sorry for the delay.
I haven't managed to find any more bugs relating to this particular
security hole that isn't fixed by the previous patch in this bug report.
kronolith seems to be fairly badly coded wrt security issues though. I'd
suggest depreciating kronolith1 and forcing people on to kronolith2,
whcih although only a little better, is actually supported upstream.
