Description David Alden 2001-12-13 08:32:27 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20010901

Description of problem:
slocate will display a filename found in a directory which doesn't allow

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.As root:
    mkdir /fubar; chmod 711 /fubar;
    touch /fubar/fubarstuff; chmod 644 /fubar/fubarstuff
2. As a regular user:
    slocate fubarstuff

Actual Results:  slocate returns /fubar/fubarstuff even though the
directory /fubar
doesn't allow file listings.  Note that this is fixed in Redhat 7.2
(which includes slocate-2.6 instead of slocate-2.5).

Expected Results:  slocate shouldn't return anything.

Marking as fixed in 7.2; I doubt we'll do an update for this.
