Description Peter Jones 2006-12-17 17:36:23 EST
Description of problem:

libparted's ped_assert() prints a stack trace, modifying a pointer to do so.  It
then frees that pointer, which doesn't work.

I've fixed this in package cvs, but need the bug to commit it.
Comment 1 Peter Jones 2006-12-17 17:39:03 EST
This is a regression from old releases, and inhibits development in some
circumstances.  And the fix is trivial.
Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-02-07 20:50:23 EST
A package has been built which should help the problem described in 
this bug report. This report is therefore being closed with a resolution 
of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the solution does 
not work for you.
