Description David Haas 2004-10-07 06:07:02 UTC
Description of problem:

Using a stock-install of FC2, some cgi queries running through
perl-DBD-Pg and perl-DBI silently "die".  No core, no reports from
perl - just a page that fails to load and a message in my apache log
file saying "malformed headers."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Completely stock install of Fedora Core 2:

Expected Results:
1) Page loads
2) Select boxes appear
3) Graphs appears

Actual Results:
1) Page loads
2) Select boxes appear
3) No graphs, but there is a message in error_log complaining
about malformed headers.

How reproducible:
Happens every time a certain block of SQL is hit in our product (it's
a select against 4 tables returning 1 column of text.)  Unfortunately,
I don't have a generic test case.

Additional info:  This is completely fixed for us by upgrading DBI &
DBD-Pg from CPAN.  The CPAN versions of DBI is currently at 1.45,
DBD-Pg is at 1.32.  Perhaps the RPMS could be updated for FC3?

Comment 1 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 15:27:57 UTC
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

No response in 1 month.  Assuming fixed.  Open a new bug if this is still an
issue in FC4.
