Description Hans Ulrich Niedermann 2004-07-30 04:47:16 EDT

Description of problem:
I use RCS with the RCS/ subdirectory for my config files.

When starting acpid while /etc/acpid/events/RCS/ exists, acpid eats
100% of CPU time. Probably acpid should ignore directories when
scanning /etc/acpid/events, or explicitly only accept files.

The busy-looping acpid doesn't even react to SIGTERM.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir /etc/acpid/events/foobar
2. /etc/init.d/acpid stop
3. /etc/init.d/acpid start

Should be fixed in acpid-1.0.3-2, to show up in rawhide soon.
