lighttpd -- multiple vulnerabilities

Description:

lighttpd security advisories report:

It is possible to inadvertantly enable vulnerable ciphers when using ssl.cipher-list.

In certain cases setuid() and similar can fail, potentially triggering lighttpd to restart running as root.

If FAMMonitorDirectory fails, the memory intended to store the context is released; some lines below the "version" compoment of that context is read. Reading invalid data doesn't matter, but the memory access could trigger a segfault.
