Description Ben LaHaise 2001-06-07 19:10:23 EDT
I am only submitting this bug report after getting confirmation that
someone else has seen the bug.  One of my own 7.0 installs with updates had
its named die a couple of weeks ago.  Upon inspection, the logs show the

May 19 22:35:14 kanga named[28855]: stale: impossible condition
May 19 22:35:14 kanga named[28855]: stale: impossible condition

Also, another box running 6.2 with updates had its named die today, the log

06-Jun-2001 18:16:21.162 panic: critical: savedata: memget

This issues are very sporadic and extremely serious.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-07-16 09:03:30 EDT
I can't reproduce this. Please check if this still happens in the current 
version from rawhide (9.1.3-2).
Marking RESOLVED RAWHIDE for now; if you can still reproduce this with the 
current bind, please reopen this bug.
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-07-17 11:40:08 EDT
Please let me know if the current version fixes this for you; I can't 
reproduce this on my testbox (and my production DNS is running 7.1).
Comment 3 Ben LaHaise 2001-07-17 11:41:34 EDT
It takes a month of running a bunch of nameservers to reproduce this; you can't
tell me it's resolved by a package that hasn't been around that long.
Comment 4 Ben LaHaise 2001-07-17 11:51:02 EDT
alternatively, if 9.1.3-2 actually does fix the bug, please release it as an
errata for 6.x and 7.x
Comment 5 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-07-17 12:33:20 EDT
I am certain that this particular problem does not exist in 9.* (since it's a 
rewrite) - but there might be other problems causing similar problems, and I'd 
rather not release a may-or-may-not-fix-a-bug-I-could-never-reproduce update.

QA people, can you find a way to reproduce this and/or make sure the current 
version is not affected?
Comment 6 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-02-14 13:13:41 EST

Comment 7 Karsten Hopp 2002-07-22 11:41:27 EDT
closing because of inactivity. Seems to be resolved with bind-9
