From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
WebMin Version 1.160 on leopards.k12.ar.us (Redhat Linux Fedora 1)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Webmin (actually tried versions from 1.110 through 1.160 on
the same and different servers with FC1, same error on all of them)
2.Click: "System" from the main WebMin screen.
3.Click: "Users and Groups" from the System menu in WebMin.
There is the output.
Actual Results: I get the following output in the browser after
clicking the Users and Groups Button in WebMin:
HTTP/1.0 500 Perl execution failed Server: MiniServ/0.01 Date: Tue, 26
Oct 2004 18:41:13 GMT Content-type: text/html Connection: close
Error - Perl execution failed
panic: realloc at ./user-lib.pl line 932.
The line number listed above is slightly different with the different
versions of WebMin, but the error is the same. I tried version from
1.110 through 1.160 on several FC1 servers with the same results.
Expected Results: The browser should have displayed the user and
group management screen in WebMin.
I was told by another the following information:
WebMin is also broken in FC2 and FC3test3. The bug is in glibc which
breaks PERL which breaks WebMin. The bug occurs when there are more
than a few supplementary hundred members of a group. The bug report is
That is a perl bug, not glibc bug.
Sorry, we are unable to fix issues in FC1 perl.
