Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 36897
missing entry in listing of an NFS directory served by IRIX

This is exactly the same bug as #30944, which
was reported more than a month ago but still
is unfixed in 7.1. I am raising its severity
and priority to high and resubmitting it as
a RedHat 7.1 bug.
One additional comment: to see this bug, you
should do "ls *" or "echo *" in tcsh, or use
the glob() function in perl; doing "ls *"
and "echo *" in bash will not reveal the bug
as bash seems to have its own way of doing

Test program that reproduces bug
We have the same problem on our site. I've just attached a test program that

I've patched the rh71 kernel rpms and made some
new iso files with these. They are available at

The patch should also be in kernel version 2.4.3-2.12.1 and later which is in
rawhide / should be there soon
I actually tried downloading and installing kernel-2.4.3-2.12.1 from rawhide,
but I still had the same problem. Perhaps the patch was introduced after
2.4.3-2.12.1 was released?
2.4.3-5 in rawhide absolutely has the patch. If it still doesn't work it's a
glibc bug. Please reopen in that case.
Confirmed; it works!
How about SGI's XFS patches? Are they, or will they be included any time soon.
(Perhaps I should add this as a separate issue?)
The same bug apparently reappears in kernel update 2.4.9-12, RedHat 7.1. Can
anybody confirm this?
I've encountered similar problems with kernel-2.4.9-13 under Red Hat 7.2, but
the symptoms aren't quite the same; with the original 7.1 kernel, one entry was
missing in readdir() output on some, possibly all, directories, while on
2.4.9-13, *nothing* is returned for large directores. Refer to Bug 55864 for
