Description Rex Dieter 2003-06-11 12:36:12 EDT
Description of problem: 
xfs sometimes unessarily rebuilds fonts.dir only because of the presences of a 
newer fonts.cache-1 file, not for any actual new fonts. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): XFree-4.3.0-15 
Patch to xfs.init to ignore the presence of fonts.cache-1 file: 
<          elif [ "$(find . -type f -cnewer fonts.dir 2>/dev/null)" != "" ];then 
>          elif [ "$(find . -type f -not -name fonts.cache-1 -cnewer fonts.dir 
2>/dev/null)" != "" ];then
Comment 1 matti aarnio 2003-06-11 12:36:12 EDT
Description of problem:
 Read into mutt a folder with messages containing
 a  multipart/mixed{ multipart/alternative{ text/plain, text/html },
                     application/anything }
 Attempting to "view" the message structure with "v" command results
 SEGV in  addch()  call, which lengthy debugging session did show up
 to be  slang-library  function  SLcurses_waddch()  via couple macro

 This appeared after I had updated kernel, glibc, lots of other
 libraries, and had restarted the system.  I hadn't updated either
 mutt, nor slang at that point.  After updating both, the problem
 didn't disappear.

 Recompining the mutt with slang removed from its SPEC file, the mutt
 with standard ncurses (-5 ?) does work just fine.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
  1. have suitably complex structured message in a test folder
     (e.g. text+html type accompanying letter + any attachment)
  2. current rawhide system
  3. mutt -f test.msg
  4. try to view ("v") message's structure

Actual Results:  SEGV

Expected Results:  view of the message structure..

Additional info:

Is this related somehow to glibc locale handling ? (maybe)
Or to slang-library bitrot ?  (hardly)
Or to a new  2.4.20-20.1.2007.nptl  kernel ?  (hardly)

Ah, indeed..

  LC_CTYPE=C        -> no problem
  LC_CTYPE=fi_FI    -> SEGV

Anyway, slang-source version is a bit oldish, and could
be updated.

This is POSSIBLY glibc locale screwup, but decoding that
has proven to be next to impossible.

BUGZILLA bugged, and mixed two separate bug entries together!
Comment 3 matti aarnio 2003-06-11 13:02:44 EDT
Apparently worse than that, bugzilla overwrote original bug report
with mine, which was supposed to go to bug# 97213 ...
Separate bug 97222 already entered for that.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2003-06-11 14:18:17 EDT
I could just close this resport, and we could all just submit the munged items... (?) 
Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2003-06-11 15:47:32 EDT
Yes, to avoid confusion, if you could both please submit new bug reports, that
would be best.
Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2003-06-11 16:36:21 EDT
report closed in deference to bug #97240.
