Description Tomáš Bžatek 2010-09-30 10:30:13 EDT
Created attachment 450772 [details]
strace of the segfaulting process

Description of problem:
sshd crashes before asking for password. Looks to be working with -8/-7 or older.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ssh localhost
2. accept unknown key warning
Actual results:
no password prompt,
sshd[4441]: segfault at 58258880 ip 00007feb565a8c58 sp 00007fff81415520 error 4 in libaudit.so.1.0.0[7feb565a2000+16000]

Additional info:
I was unable to grab a backtrace, attaching to sshd and setting "set follow-fork-mode child" won't stop on segfault and I only get "Program exited with code 0377."
No abrt here (various reasons), debugging hints welcome, already reported the gdb issue to jkratochvil.

So attaching a strace report instead.

Me too.   Message on server console when trying to ssh from clinet.

   sshd[1409]: segfault at ffffffff830b7830 ip 00007f9881a8dc58 sp 00007fffd3faddd0 error 4 in libaudit.so.1.0.0[7f9881a87000+16000]
Problem goes away with downgrade to: openssh-5.6p1-8.fc15.x86_64.rpm
Doesn't seem to happen on i686.
