Description John Pierman 2014-04-16 18:29:02 UTC
command: rsync -rvc /tmp/dir1/ /tmp/dir2/


building file list ...
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(226) [sender=3.1.1pre1]


rsync[38216]: segfault at 2a36 ip 00000000004209b6 sp 00007fffa6fc7e50 error 6 in rsync[400000+6b000]


--- SIGCHLD (Child exited) @ 0 (0) ---
wait4(-1, [{WIFSIGNALED(s) && WTERMSIG(s) == SIGSEGV && WCOREDUMP(s)}], WNOHANG, NULL) = 8792
wait4(-1, 0x7fff1fcd221c, WNOHANG, NULL) = -1 ECHILD (No child processes)

Works with small amount of files in directory.
Does not work with large amount of files in directory.

If I compile without the checksum-reading.diff, the binary works fine with both large file sets and small file sets.

Interesting part is that I was not even using the "--sumfiles=MODE" option at all when the problems occur, just having the patch applied results in issues.

Tested only with 3.1.pre1

Can you give me a backtrace with symbols?  I can't get it to fail.  You may be able to install a package with debug symbols or build rsync from source and run that version.  If you get a core dump, load the core into a debugger (e.g. "gdb /path/rsync /path/core") and attach the backtrace (e.g. "bt").
