Description of problem:
New RedHat 7.1 installation with locale set to "pl_PL". Printing to
remote queue on Solaris 2.6 server fails - there is core dump in Solaris
spool directory left and some control files as well which cause Solaris
tools like lpstat to dump core when invoked.
The problem doesn't exist when printing daemon on RH workstation is invoked
with locale set to "C".
The fault doesn't depend on setting strict RFC1179 compliance checkbox.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just print to a queue located on Sparc Solaris 2.6 box.
I just tried it one more time and must say that I was wrong. It doesn't seem to
be related to locale setting as fault occurs with locale set to "C", "en",
and "pl_PL". Sorry for introducing false lead.
Do you happen to know if Red Hat Linux 7.2 has the same problem, in the same
Unfortunately I don't know. I can try to find out but not earlier then in five
weeks time. My guess is that the problem is related to locale seting (even if I
retracted it) - probably the offendig one is LC_NUMERIC which introduces commas
as tenth separator instead of more American dot. And as I know 7.2 sets filter
locales to C so probably it is already fixed.
