Description Martin Poole 2007-12-30 10:51:40 EST
Description of problem:

There is a problem in RRDp.pm when the error_mode is set to catch and an error

Since the behaviour of rrdtool in pipe mode describes the result of a command
being one of two things

   1. OK followed by the timings
   2. ERROR followed by a relevant string 

the RRDp needs to take into account that the read sequence is complete in either

Unfortunately the ERROR case returns to the read loop rather than returning.
This results in the calling program hanging.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. attempt to update an rrd with an old timestamp
Actual results:

code hangs in module

Expected results:

returns undef
