Description Ryan Lim 2006-06-30 12:46:08 EDT
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
- tcsh-6.13-9

How reproducible:
This happens ocassionally on my setup.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd ~user

Actual results:
root@snowshoe ~# cd ~username/
                                      userPassword      uidNumber      

Shell then becomes unusable.

Expected results:
To change directory to the user (username)'s home directory.

Additional info:
This problem happens ocassionally. I do not know what triggers this.

Are you sure this is a problem with Fedora DS?  Does this work fine with other
Directory Servers?  Have you verified that your pam/nss/autofs configuration is
Comment 2 Ryan Lim 2006-08-03 08:30:34 EDT
I have not tried other directory servers, but this much I know: my two identical machines using the same 
directory server, both exhibit the same behavior.

PAM/NSS were configured using system-config-authentication. Automount doesn't use ldap.

This is not a directory server bug.
