fwbackups: errantly follows symbolic links until all system resources are consumed
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:00 EST
Description of problem:
It seems that fwbackups errantly follows symbolic links recursively until all
system resources are consumed.
I started a fwbackups job and let it run. It ran for about 14 hours and when I
returned home, it had consumed enormous space on the destination, all available
memory (2G), and was still churning away. I did a strace on the process and
It seems that there is a symbolic link in
~/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/profiles/bjohnson/My Music that points back to ~.
fwbackups seems to be recursively following this. This is one of many links.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The new engines in 1.43.0 fix this, as you suggested in 233772 perhaps you test
and can confirm this?
