Bug in upstream libldap causes assert in io.c:ber_flush2()
Last modified: 2008-06-23 09:58:22 EDT
Description of problem:
Please see original Evolution bug report where the problem manifests itself:
The resulting OpenLDAP bug report:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Based on my reading of the bug report and the diff's applied to the openldap CVS
tree it looks like this would have impacted openldap versions <= 2.4.9 and <=
2.3.42 and HEAD.
Tough to reproduce reliably, but very annoying and painful for Evolution users
who are trying to run Fedora and connect to their corporate Exchange environment.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use Evolution to connect to Exchange
2. Cause Evolution to do one or more LDAP lookups against AD for GAL/contact
3. See a crash or repeat #2 until you do :)
The fix is already upstream:
This is just a request to track the patch or next released OpenLDAP as soon as
possible in Fedora as this is a problem that undoubtedly impacts a number of
Evolution Exchange Connector users and provides for a frustrating experience.
