Yes, the kernel now uses the correct value for maximum of digipeaters
(8, instead of 6). This changed the size of sockaddr_ax25,
full_sockaddr_ax25. However, I have provided some code that should work
around the problem of existing binaries that use the old value. In
theory, at least. Can you "strace -f ax25d" and send me the output, I'd
like to have a look at it.

Recompiling the ax25-utils should solve your problem, maybe you need to
fix your /usr/include/netax25/ax25.h if you're useing a recent glibc
system, but I'm really interested in the strace output :-)
