Description Dave Johnson 2011-09-20 18:55:53 UTC
Description of problem:
Calling run_uri/string with a key containing special characters (dave's $$$) causes the call to time out.  This was working in v0.4.4-2. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
v0.4.4-4...Also seen running on Fedora with v0.4.5-0.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
sysconfig.run_string('file { "/var/www/html/sysconfig-test":\n    owner => root, group => root, mode => 440\n}', 0, 'puppet', "dave's $$$")

Actual results:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/qmf/console.py", line 308, in <lambda>
    return lambda *args, **kwargs : self._invoke(name, args, kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/qmf/console.py", line 452, in _invoke
    raise RuntimeError("Timed out waiting for method to respond")
RuntimeError: Timed out waiting for method to respond

Comment 2 Russell Bryant 2011-09-20 19:53:09 UTC
I tried reproducing this with qmf-tool but it didn't happen, can you try?

The method call returns an unknown status since it wasn't able to create a file with that name, but it did provide a response instead of timing out.

qmf: call 2 run_string 'file { "/tmp/sysconfigtest": owner => root, group => root, mode => 440 }' 0 "puppet" "dave's $$$"
Output Parameters:
    Name    Value
    status  unknown

Comment 3 Dave Johnson 2011-09-20 20:50:44 UTC
Hrm... I get the same timeout exception when using qmf-tool

qmf: call 2 run_string 'file { "/var/www/html/sysconfig-test":\n    owner => root, group => root, mode => 440\n}' 0  puppet "dave's $$$"
Exception in call command: From Remote Agent: {'error_text': 'Timed out waiting for the agent to respond'}

Comment 6 Dave Johnson 2011-09-28 15:23:00 UTC
This looks good now, marking as verified.
