/etc/services still seems to require a proper entry for whatever port number
you may specify predict to run as. Without that entry associating predict
with that port number, predict crashes. one thing I had to fix was
/etc/services had port 1210 udp assigned to another service. predict
repeatedly crashed until I specified in /etc/services an association between
predict and the port it wanted to run on, replacing the service that was
formerly bound to said port (1210).
