Description Tommy Reynolds 2002-02-25 18:08:24 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.17-local i686)

Description of problem:
Linux kernel configured for EXT3 filesystem with a read-only NTFS
filesystem mounted on "/dos/d".  Using ZSH's autocompletion command (ls
/dos/d/<TAB>) hangs the entire kernel, forcing a CPU reset to reboot.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use EXT3 linux partitions
2. Mount an NTFS partition
3. Use ZSH shell autocompletion to list files in a directory: "ls /dos/d/<TAB>"

Actual Results:  System deadlock

Additional info:

Public 2.4.17 works correctly.  Check with SCT for a patch to correct locking
problem that causes this.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-02-25 18:11:27 UTC
Step 2 fails since we don't have ntfs enabled, because it's broken .....
