Description David Binderman 2004-12-22 12:26:04 EST
Description of problem:

I just tried to compile package iprutils-2.0.13-1 from 
Redhat Fedora development tree.

The compiler said

iprconfig.c(6786): remark #592: variable "menu_index" is used before
its value is set

The source code is

	rc = display_menu(menu_item, start_row, menu_index, &retptr);

I agree with the compiler. Suggest init menu_index before first use.
