Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2005-01-05 07:20:09 EST
Here is a similar report from fedora-list:


Could you please try running this as root?:

  perl -e 'ioctl(STDIN,0x84005001,$result);print $result' </dev/usb/lp0

Does that do the same thing?
Comment 3 Adam Patacchiola 2005-01-05 11:22:08 EST
[root@localhost ~]# perl -e 'ioctl(STDIN,0x84005001,$result);print $result'
*** glibc detected *** malloc(): memory corruption: 0x08064f78 ***

Apparently so. 
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2005-01-05 11:53:13 EST
This is going wrong in the perl program then.  Chip, any idea what's up?
Comment 5 Adam Patacchiola 2005-01-11 11:33:25 EST
I just noticed that when I run this program at home it does not hang. I have a
notebook that i use in a docking station at work, where the program hangs. The
docking station has a usb parallel printer port emulator. Perhaps something is
going on with that that is causing the problem? Is there a workaround.. I don't
care about using the parallel port?

Is this the same issue as Bug #144536?
Comment 9 Tim Waugh 2005-05-19 04:25:10 EDT
Yes, and that bug has a stack trace.
