I'll post the advisory as soon as I can get it ready. It's probably going to be another hour or two. The only reason I've paused to post this response is to ask everyone to wait for the advisory and stop experimenting. This one is really strange in the interactions with various releases, features, and hardware. The real problem is that if you try enough different combinations of config commands to shut off the problem, you'll put your ATM connections in a very poor state (that's the best way I can put it). As a side note, this is a problem with the standards. In particular, how the standards _require_ a function to be implemented. Please wait for the advisory. Thanks!
