The specific implementation I was talking about is
it's NetBSD derived, and it seems at least NetBSD and OpenBSD use the
same or a similar implementation. I couldn't quickly find what FreeBSD
uses, but I wouldn't be surprised if it uses something like that as

I tried to create an account on their bugzilla yesterday, but for
some reason I never got the confirmation mail. I'll probably try again
in a few days. http://sources.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2540
looks like a similar issue.
