Description Henri Schlereth 2000-07-20 00:41:46 UTC
This was an accidental discovery I was shipping the updated nfs-utils around to various systems and
on one I had a symlink nfs1 --> /nfs1 under a user account. put nfs* immediately core dumps with a
segmentation fault. put nfs-* works, also oddly enough mput nfs* works to where it wants to also
upload the symlink/directory. Like I side I dont knowhow much of a bug this is but I thought I report it

The symlink seems to be a red herring.  I can trigger this also with 'put *' and
regular files.  Poke around with gdb and you see that the seg fault is in a
free, relatively obvious conclusion to come to.  Comparison to the netkit ftp
source (which has the same ancient base as the mit code) shows that the free in
cmds.c:1863 (krb5-1.2.1) isn't present in the netkit source.  Removal of this
line seems to fix the problem for me

Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-09-12 18:29:49 UTC
This should be fixed in krb5-1.1.1-25 and krb5-1.2.1-9.  Until Raw Hide gets
refreshed, you can grab updated packages from http://people.redhat.com/krb5/.
