Description Jonathan Kamens 2007-12-18 01:06:25 EST
I've got current rawhide everything, including gcc-4.1.2-36, glibc-2.7.90-1,

dvd+rw-format crashes for me on startup.  It's the child process that's
crashing.  Backtrace from the core file:

#0  0x0012d402 in __kernel_vsyscall ()
#1  0x0028e820 in raise (sig=6) at ../nptl/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/raise.c:64
#2  0x00290121 in abort () at abort.c:88
#3  0x002c8ccb in __libc_message (do_abort=2, 
    fmt=0x392088 "*** %s ***: %s terminated\n")
    at ../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/libc_fatal.c:170
#4  0x00351768 in __fortify_fail (msg=0x392057 "buffer overflow detected")
    at fortify_fail.c:32
#5  0x0034fe10 in __chk_fail () at chk_fail.c:29
#6  0x003507ec in __wctomb_chk (s=0x8050688 "", wchar=177, buflen=0)
    at wctomb_chk.c:33
#7  0x08048ed6 in plusminus_locale () at /usr/include/bits/stdlib.h:94
#8  0x0804ae25 in main (argc=2, argv=0xbfc813f4) at dvd+rw-format.cpp:253
#9  0x0027b4a0 in __libc_start_main (main=0x804ad50 <main>, argc=2, 
    ubp_av=0xbfc813f4, init=0x804e580 <__libc_csu_init>, 
    fini=0x804e570 <__libc_csu_fini>, rtld_fini=0x11e9a0 <_dl_fini>, 
    stack_end=0xbfc813ec) at libc-start.c:220
#10 0x08048bf1 in _start ()

I've narrowed it down to the fact that it was built with _FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 and
wctomb is aborting because the cal to __builtin_object_size is returning 0.  I
do not understand the arcana of the compiler, __builtin_object_size or FORTIFY
here enough to understand which moving part isn't working properly.
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2008-01-08 04:13:51 EST
looks like a glibc bug
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2008-01-08 04:28:25 EST

extern "C" char *plusminus_locale()                                            
{ static class __plusminus {                                                   
        char str[4];                                                           
        __plusminus()   {   setlocale(LC_CTYPE,ENV_LOCALE);                    
                            int l = wctomb(str,(wchar_t)(unsigned char)'.');   
                            if (l>0)    str[l]='\0';                           
                            else        str[0]='.',str[1]='\0';                
        ~__plusminus()  { }                                                    
        operator char*(){ return str; }                                        
  } plusminus;                                                                 
  return plusminus;                                                            

and see man wctomb:
The programmer must ensure that there is room for at  least  MB_CUR_MAX bytes at s.
For UTF-8 MB_CUR_MAX is 6, which is bigger than 4 and that's why glibc is
complaining.  If you don't want a VLA buffer, you can use MB_LEN_MAX (16 for
glibc), which is guaranteed to be >= MB_CUR_MAX for any supported locale.

It sort of sucks that this is still broken over three months after the bug
report was filed, when Jakub has explained how it can be easily fixed.
