From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
when regenerating/checking tripwire database the application will segfault when 
it gets to a directory tree with UID/GUID not on the system (displayed as 
integer not name).
Assigning UID/GUID resolves problem

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.untar files from another system tar'd from a non existing UID/GUID
2.regenerate tripwire db
3.wait for segfault

Actual Results:  segfault

Expected Results:  Error handling with human readable output

Additional info:

In the specific scenario i was working in the directory had been untar'd 
into /root
tripwire failed from the day the tarball was extracted....
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2002-11-16 16:15:59 EST
This sequence WORKSFORME with tripwire-2.3.1-15:

(/root/.gnome_private originally missing)
	cd /root
	touch .gnome_private
	chown 12345.12345 .gnome_private

Reopen with more info, please, if the above does not
reproduce your problem.
