Description Kambiz Aghaiepour 2000-07-20 16:25:25 EDT
Finger core dumps if the user has no GCOS entry.  This happens in an NIS
environment (haven't tried it with local passwd entries).

Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-07-23 16:57:42 EDT
This looks like it's fixed by the latest glibc, which prints (null) if
the field is empty.

This problem appears to be solved in Raw Hide. Please reopen if not.
