Description Matthew Booth 2013-11-21 06:37:16 EST
python-augeas passes python unicode strings directly to the C api. Python unicode seems to use wide characters, causing the C api to misinterpret the \0 in the first character as the end of the string. Therefore, all unicode paths are interpreted as '/':

>>> from augeas import Augeas
>>> h = Augeas()
>>> h.match(u'/files/etc/passwd/*')
['/augeas', '/files']

The fix for this is already upstream in commit 0199f75bbdfe8ace02c5d38f4cfa27791eb97e44. However, there doesn't appear to be an upstream commit which contains it. This error is pretty severe, so perhaps upstream could be convinced to do a new release containing it.
