Description Tom Browder 2006-07-15 15:28:25 UTC
Description of problem: Seg faults in a large program have been traced to the 
regex function of glibc using the Electric Fence memory checker.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): glibc-2.4-8

How reproducible:

  Compile attached test program:
    g++ -g -o tr test_regex_match.cc -lefence

  Run program:
    tr 1

Actual results: =====>
WARNING(test_regex_match.cc,16): regex empty!
WARNING(test_regex_match.cc,19): test string empty!

ElectricFence Aborting: Allocating 0 bytes, probably a bug.
Illegal instruction (core dumped)

Expected results: =====>
WARNING(test_regex_match.cc,18): regex empty!
WARNING(test_regex_match.cc,22): test string empty!
Normal end.

Comment 2 Tom Browder 2006-07-15 15:33:39 UTC
This was a mistake, when I submitted bug #199000 I got an error message saying 
something like "Invalid Product Name, press BACK and try again."  So I did, 
hence the duplicate.

Sorry.
