Description Need Real Name 2002-10-11 09:16:30 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
Source file kdm/chooser/chooser.cpp contains incorrect definition for command 
line options.
This definition must be done in accordance with KDELIBS-3.0 documentation (see 
The last structure of options array must be {0,0,0}.
But in  kdm/chooser/chooser.cpp we see:
static KCmdLineOptions options[] = {
    /* XXX use I18N_NOOP !!!! */
    {"xdmaddress <addr>", "Specify the chooser socket (in hex)", 0},
    {"clientaddress <addr>", "Specify the client ip (in hex)", 0},
    {"connectionType <type>", "Specify the connection type (in dec)", 0},
    {"+[host]", "Specify the hosts to list or use BROADCAST", 0}
GCC 2.96 - and GCC 3.2-compiled chooser run succesfully.
But if another compiler (such as Intel C++ compiler for Linux) is being used 
chooser crashes in the function parseAllArgs () at kcmdlineargs.cpp 
line#536: "if (option->name[0] == '+')"

The simplest way to solve the problem is to add {0,0,0} at the end of command 
line options (patch is attached).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install Intel C++ compiler for Linux
2.build the package using Intel C++ compiler 
3.cd kdm/chooser

Actual Results:  Segmentation fault

Expected Results:  application window must be shown
