Description sg618lo 1999-08-09 15:34:02 UTC
The ping command of netkit-base-0.10-32 gives
output similar to the following one when my isdn
device gets under heavy load (i.e. > 5k/sec):

wrong data byte #8 should be 0x7c but was 0x7b
        7b f3 ae 37 13 19 1 0 8 9 a b c d e f 10 11 12 13 14
15 16 17 18 19 1a 1b 1c 1d 1e 1f
        20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 2a 2b 2c 2d 2e 2f

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-09 20:07:59 UTC
A fix for an alpha sizeof(time_t) != 4 problem compared timevals
as well as patterns. Long (>1 sec) round trip times caused
packets to miscompare. The fix is to not compare the timeval,
so this isn't really data corruption.


Fixed in netkit-base-0.10-33.
