Description Rex Arul 2023-11-08 15:54:55 UTC
gcal 4.1 version in both Fedora 38 and 39 are continuing to fail. 

Issue this simple command:

 gcal ..

And you will see this error:

*** buffer overflow detected ***: terminated

Apparently, the FORTIFY_SOURCE level changed since F38 is making this latent issue manifested in the open. 

WORKAROUND: Install the same gcal 4.1 version from Fedora Workstation 37's build. That installer's program works just fine.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. invoke gcal -- either with "gcal --version" or "gcal .." 

Actual Results:  
*** buffer overflow detected ***: terminated

With that error, the program exits.

Expected Results:  
1. For gcal --version, version info should be displayed.
2. For gcal .. the current 3-month window (current, previous, and next month) must be displayed.

Despite the same version of gcal (4.1) the last known installer's version that works is from F37. That is how I am working around this problem for now.
