Description Bob Arendt 2005-06-17 05:11:19 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Today's update of jpilot dies repeatable on startup, generating a glibc
backtrace.  To ensure this wasn't the effect of prior data, I removed my
$HOME/.jpilot directory.  jpilot started properly.  Entering the device,
it will start syncing, and die with a backtrace partway through.  Attempts
to start thereafter yeild an immediate backtrace.

Regressing to jpilot-0.99.7-2 works.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Remove $HOME/.jpilot
2.  Start jpilot, set the device to /dev/pilot
3.  Push m125 cradle sync button, then the sync button on jpilot
4.  Sync starts, the it dies and displays a backtrace.

Actual Results:  See attached for initial backtrace, and subsequent startup backtrace.
