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):
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
In the specific scenario i was working in the directory had been untar'd
tripwire failed from the day the tarball was extracted....
This sequence WORKSFORME with tripwire-2.3.1-15:
(/root/.gnome_private originally missing)
chown 12345.12345 .gnome_private
Reopen with more info, please, if the above does not
reproduce your problem.
