Description Šimon Lukašík 2011-11-26 08:26:14 UTC
Description of problem:
There is a reference leak bug in python-psycopg2. Sadly, I cannot provide
narrow reproducer (without Spacewalk components).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Spacewalk nightly (PostgreSQL variant) on RHEL5 (or equivalent)
2. Create some non-empty custom channels
3. # /usr/bin/rhn-satellite-exporter --channel=parent-qrywz \
   --channel=child-of-parent-qrywz --dir=/tmp/dump.errata.kgCvf28372

Actual results:
02:51:20 Gathering channel info...
Appending channels ['child-of-parent-qrywz', 'parent-qrywz']
02:51:20 Gathering binary RPM info...
python: Modules/gcmodule.c:275: visit_decref:
Assertion `gc->gc.gc_refs != 0' failed.

Expected results:
Export should pass.

This problem was actually fixed in upstream. The attached please find
an equivalent of upstream's commit: eaa97def731faa6fb9b17cfe9005d327f6a70341

Comment 3 Jan Hutař 2012-03-15 12:26:59 UTC
This was observed also on RHEL6 with python-psycopg2-2.0.14-1.el6_2.1

Do we have a RHEL 6 version of this bugzilla?

Comment 5 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2012-07-25 15:15:15 UTC
I don't work with the Python CAPI but a quick look at the patch seems sane.  I also checked that

* This is the only difference between typecast.c in 2.0.14 and typecast.c at the time of the upstream commit.
* The patch is still applied in upstream's current 2.4.4 release.

Devrim, I'll go ahead and apply and build tomorrow unless I hear otherwise from you.

I see, python-psycopg2 is in EPEL5 and RHEL6 (and not EPEL6). Cloned as bug 843723. Thanks for the ping here.
