i tried only this exploit on two systems (2.2.19+ow+stealth and 2.4.12 
plain) - and it didnt work.
this exploit seems to be a bit "fuzzy", on some systems, it works (someone 
told me about an 2.2.19+ow3+stealth and the mailinglist reports about an 
2.4.1x+gresec) - dunno why.

so, try this exploit yourself and look for the result
