Description Richard Hoelscher 2005-05-19 23:47:54 EDT
There's a crasher when a new game of Gnibbles is started in the latest FC test.
It happens with gnome-games source or binary RPMs, not with the typical install,
so it's never been reported before.

The fix is very simple and revolves around improper use of fgets and bug
overflows, more about it can be found upstream:

We've had 4 reports of this bug upstream in just 7 days.

Thanks, I'll see if I can get this taken care for FC4.
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-05-20 11:15:09 EDT
should be fixed in tomorrow's rawhide.  Thanks for the patch.
