Description Mephisto 2006-11-07 13:26:53 EST
Description of problem:
When i run a udp port scan with nmap (using the following command: nmap -sU -p
1-65535 localhost), avahi exits. The avahi daemon will show up in the scan
results, but the process will be gone after the scan.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install avahi and nmap
2. run avahi-daemon
3. run: nmap -sU -p 1-65535 localhost
Actual results:
The avahi daemon has crashed or otherwise shut down.

Expected results:
The daemon should still be running like nothing has happened.

Btw, i have not tested this from a remote host, since the avahi port seems
random to me, and running an nmap scan over all ports takes a very long time.

In current version (avahi-0.6.17-1.fc7) it seems working. If you still are able
to reproduce the bug feel free to reopen this bug
