Description Mike McLean 2003-07-01 12:12:32 EDT
* x3270-x11-3.2.19-4

[mike@test114 mike]$ chmod u-rw .x3270connect
[mike@test114 mike]$ x3270 vmqa.z900.redhat.com
Warning: Actions not found: Begin
Warning: Actions not found: Begin
Segmentation fault

Furthermore, x3270 seems to ignore the value of the $HOME environment variable
and instead reads /etc/passwd to determine where to look for the .x3270connect file.

The "Actions not found: Begin" warning is a separate problem.  It always spits
those messages out.
Comment 1 Karsten Hopp 2003-07-09 05:45:06 EDT
The segfault is fixed in release -4. 
I can't reproduce the 'Action not found' problem. Do you have a ~/.x3270pro file or an 
ibm_hosts file ?
