Last modified: 2015-01-04 18:20:18 EST
Description of problem:
There is a problem when (in the shell) performing a "cd ~username". I get some
sort of object printout and the shell (tcsh-6.13-9) then becomes unusable.
Control-C does not terminate the current process. I have not tested/verified
this with other shells.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- Fedora Directory Server 1.0.2
This happens ocassionally on my setup.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd ~user
root@snowshoe ~# cd ~username/
Shell then becomes unusable.
To change directory to the user (username)'s home directory.
This problem happens ocassionally. I do not know what triggers this.

Directory Servers? Have you verified that your pam/nss/autofs configuration is
I have not tried other directory servers, but this much I know: my two identical machines using the same

This is not a directory server bug.
