Description David Kutálek 2012-10-01 14:36:49 UTC
Description of problem:

abrt-retrace-client already refuses problem directory with link to file like /var/log/audit/audit/log, but link to /dev/random is not refused and process is eating memory to send it.

# ln -s /var/log/audit/audit.log ./coredump
# abrt-retrace-client batch -d ./
Your problem directory is corrupted and can not be processed by the Retrace server.
The archive contains malicious files (such as symlinks) and thus can not be processed.
# rm ./coredump 
rm: remove symbolic link ‘./coredump’? y
# ln -s /dev/random ./coredump
# abrt-retrace-client batch -d ./
