Description jane.o.cashin 2017-01-23 21:46:09 UTC
Description of problem:
When I call the XInput2 function XIQueryDevice I core dump when I try to access "name" (char *) and classes (XIAnyClassInfo **) from the returned XIDeviceInfoPtr.  I am able to access all the other structure variables in the structure (deviceid, use, attachment, enabled, num_classes).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Using Red Hat 7.3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Call XIQueryDevice
2. Access the "name" variable from the returned structure

Actual results:
Core dump

Expected results:
Should be able to read the data from the pointer to the structure.
