Description Zeke Harris 2001-08-06 09:46:50 EDT
Description of Problem:
Disk Druid dies on 'odd' "Fill maximum size of (MB):" entries. For example:
10495-19478. Any strange characters in the int will screw it up. = works
	Don't bother asking me why I put a - in there...Bad typing, maybe? Oh

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Partition w/disk druid
2. Have some free space
3. Select "Fill maximum size of (MB)" option, and put a 'number' containing
an odd character (I know that - and = work, not sure about others) in the

Actual Results:
Anaconda crashes and generates a backtrace (will be attached)

Expected Results:
Anaconda printing out a nice little "What the hell are you thinking?" error

Additional Information:
Dump attached.

I've verified this.  You can basically enter any character.  For example, I can
enter "skippy" as the size, which will cause the installer to crash.

We (Red Hat) should try to fix this for the next release.
