It's not how SET operations per-se are handled that has changed,
but how *AgentX* SET operations are handled.


for the relevant code change. (SVN revision 5431, dated July 12th, 2001)

The behaviour of the UCD agent (which sent a response to the final Cleanup-Set
message) was wrong. The AgentX specs clearly state that no response should
be sent following this message - see RFC 2741, section This error was
corrected for the Net-SNMPagent (certainly 5.1.x and above - possibly
5.0.x as well).
This stage is mapped into the COMMIT phase of the {UCD,Net}-SNMP agent
SET processing when running as an AgentX subagent - hence the behaviour you
are seeing.
