Description Robert Nichols 2005-01-10 09:49:26 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
The "restorecon" utility segfaults if run with all three of the
options "-R" "-v" and "-n".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "restorecon -R -v -n /"

Actual Results:  
restorecon reset context / (null)->system_u:object_r:root_t
Segmentation fault

Expected Results:  The (apparently) redundant "-v" option should
either be complained about or ignored.
