Description of problem:
Running kernel 2.6.9-55.0.2.ELsmp on a x86_64 system, I can generate a kernel
panic and system crash by running pine 4.64 from University of Washington
(RPM pine-4.64-1.i386) with a particular mail filter configuration.
This is most likely a bug in pine too, but shouldn't be able to panic the kernel
from purely user code
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a pine message filter rule for messages addressed to the current hostname
2. Run pine 4.64.
As pine performs its message filter checks against the current inbox, it triggers a kernel panic. Messages appear on the system console - enough to identify pine as the culprit, but are not written to system logs.
Would it be possible to get the oops message from this panic? That might give us
some indication of how best to reproduce this.
No response in several months. Closing bug with resolution of INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
Please reopen if you're still able to reproduce this and can provide more info.
