Description Jamie Zawinski 2002-02-01 01:56:06 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686; Nav)

Description of problem:
Red Hat 7.2 comes with rsync 2.4.6-8.

Since upgrading to RH7.2, I've been periodically having
problems with corrupted files being uploaded, with the
error message:

Warning: unexpected read size of 0 in map_ptr
Warning: unexpected read size of 0 in map_ptr

I upgraded to "rsync  version 2.5.2  protocol version 26"
from samba.anu.edu.au and the problem seems to have gone

That site distributes RH RPMs of rsync, but only as
new as 2.4.6.  I had to build from source.

How reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce: unclear.
Actual Results:  corrupted non-identical files.
Expected Results:  identical files, man.

There's a 2.4.6-10 errata on the FTP site now; it replaces the (unfortunately)
broken 2.4.6-8 errata.
