Description Jon Stanley 2008-01-09 19:59:16 EST
I was attempting to use createrepo and have a possibly corrupt rpm in the tree
(this tree has been known to have various corruption problems on my end). 
createrepo segfaults in rpmlib, in dataLength.

backtrace:

Comment 1 Jon Stanley 2008-01-09 20:06:16 EST
I can provide the full core and/or the corrupt rpm if needed.  Also, a simple
'rpm -qip' on this package also segfaults in the same place.  Fedora versions of
rpm do not do this, but rather throw an error (which would be the expected
behavior).

[jstanley@dhcp-126 ~]$ rpm -qip kernel-PAE-debug-devel-2.6.23.8-63.fc8.i686.rpm
error: kernel-PAE-debug-devel-2.6.23.8-63.fc8.i686.rpm: headerRead failed:
Header sanity check: OK

The bad version of rpm is rpm-4.3.3-22_nonptl and the "good" version is
rpm-4.4.2.2-7.fc8
