Comment 1 Warren Togami 2004-10-30 19:21:22 EDT
Confirmed.  Perhaps it is something in about the arbitrary data coming
from the whois over the network?  *bad*

No, it happens when there is more than one redirection. This patch quiets down
valgrind on FC2, I'll test on FC3t* tomorrow.
Comment 4 Dams 2004-10-30 20:47:25 EDT
Miloslav : tested on fc3t3/rawhide : 

[anvil@gruyere ~]# LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 whois
[Querying whois.arin.net]

OrgName:    Asia Pacific Network Information Centre
OrgID:      APNIC
Address:    PO Box 2131

Sounds good. Thanks.
Comment 5 Miloslav Trmač 2004-10-31 18:30:21 EST
Dams, thanks for testing.
Built for rawhide; fixing in FC3 will probably have to be done
in an update.
Comment 6 Miloslav Trmač 2004-11-10 14:22:29 EST
Fixed in jwhois-3.2.2-6.FC3.1. Thanks.
