Description Mark Schreiber 2007-07-11 14:10:59 EDT
Description of problem:
/usr/bin/host dumps core when the -w flag (no timeout) is used with a nameserver.

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

How reproducible:
$ host -w www.redhat.com ns1.redhat.com
timer.c:710: INSIST(result == 0 || result == 2) failed.
zsh: abort (core dumped)  host -w www.redhat.com

Steps to Reproduce:
1.$ host -w www.redhat.com ns1.redhat.com
Actual results:
Core dump produced

Expected results:
To return a response or simply wait forever, similar to behavior with -W10000
flag (but forever, instead of 10000 seconds).

Additional info:
Comment 1 Mark Schreiber 2007-07-11 14:13:50 EDT
Ooops.  The core dump should be from a process with the commandline host -w
www.redhat.com ns1.redhat.com rather than host -w www.redhat.com  I was
trying different options.
Comment 2 Adam Tkac 2007-07-17 02:13:52 EDT
Fixed in rawhide, 9.5.0a5-3
