Package: snmpd
Version: 5.2.2-5
Severity: normal

Packagine 5.2.3 is pretty easy (compared to 5.3.x).  It already includes
in the upstream patches 15_rh9-522 16_man_pages_section
17_man_pages_typo 22_net-snmp-5.2.x-sysObjectID which should be removed.
Everything else appears to just build as is.

I am seeing a lot of memory leaking with 5.2.2, but am now going to see
how much the bug fixes for memory leaks in 5.2.3 help.

Could we have 5.2.3 added to unstable/testing to get rid of the worst of
these problems without having to wait for 5.3 to be bug free enough to
enter instead?
