Description of problem:

I just tried to compile package bonobo-1.0.22-7, from Redhat
Fedora Core 1.

The compiler said


efstool.c(47): warning #175: subscript out of range

The source code is

        passwd[sizeof(passwd)] = 0;

Better code would be

        passwd[ sizeof( passwd) - 1 ] = 0;

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

Still broken in Fedora Core 2
Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2004-07-28 08:15:56 EDT
Same goes for what I said in bug #111018 unfortunately. This code is
even more obsolete - the EFS code was never used at runtime AFAIK and
has since been removed from bonobo. Also, the package - being a GNOME
1.4 package - is only kept for compatibitity reasons. Thanks.

>the EFS code ... has since been removed from bonobo.

Strange. Same bug still appears to exist in the version of bonobo
available 08 March 2005.

>is only kept for compatibitity reasons.

Even stranger. The version number keeps going up, so someone's doing 
some development of it.

The package "bonobo" is a GNOME 1.4 package. The GNOME 2.x version is

The last version of bonobo released was in December 2002:


The release number (i.e. from -9 to -10) went up recently because it
was rebuilt with gcc4.
