libpopt sensitivity to $POSIXLY_CORRECT nukes smbstatus option processing
Last modified: 2016-07-19 06:22:09 EDT
As of rawhide samba 4.1rc (and far back as rhel5's samba 3),
compare & contrast:
% env -u POSIXLY_CORRECT smbstatus --help
% env POSIXLY_CORRECT=1 smbstatus --help
The latter ignores the --help option. This is due to libpopt being
sensitive to that environment variable, (popt.c:195 as of popt 1.13).
Please consider explicitly unsetting the environment variable before
calling into libpopt. Or fix (if there is a problem; dunno) the
smbstatus long-options to be sufficiently saintly to work even with
