Huge memory leak in ypserv
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:00:39 EST
I finally tracked down how query for a non-existent map brought down
my NIS server. ypserv never frees the memory allocated for non-existent
maps. Here is a patch which seems to help a lot. I don't know if there
are any other memory leaks in ypserv.

A patch to fix one memory leak
I don't think this patch is needed for ypserv-2.5 (which is in 8.0 final).
It verifies that the _db_open call didn't fail before strdup:ing domain and map.
Can you verify if it works for you?
It seems ok. It will be nice to have an update for 7.x.
