Really...? Any online examples of this?

I'm sincerely curious as to how I could overcome the inability to create a directory named "AC/DC" in my music files directory (where each subdirectory is named after the artist/band whose song files are stored within).

Back to the article, I feel somewhat re-assured that the various DNS library implementations would appear to fail given strange input that the RFCs seem to allow. And besides, those are relatively low-numbered RFCs; surely they've been around a while to shake out the bugs. </slightly ignorant observation>

Thanks to Phil Pennock and the Exim developers looking into this.
