Description Peter Wainwright 2006-06-01 09:24:28 EDT
Description of problem: String buffer overflow
(allocation fails to include room for trailing '\0')

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

How reproducible:
In ddd (gdb console) type
b 'AnyView::~AnyView'
Actual results:
glibc detected memory corruption in free.

Expected results:
Set breakpoint.

Additional info:
The maximum extra size of the string should be 10, not 9.
I calculate it as sizeof("'::base$(")+1.

Comment 2 Jan Kratochvil 2006-07-25 11:00:52 EDT
Patch confirmed as required and valid - for Red Hat patch
gdb-6.3-linespec-20041213.patch (CVS release 1.2).
Patch still needed for RPM built on top of "gdb-".
Upstream "gdb-" is not affected by this Bug.
