Description Richard Sharpe 2004-05-09 09:28:36 UTC
coolo has pointed out some cases where errno is not set on an error return:

Comment 1 Stephan Kulow 2004-05-09 11:55:26 UTC
the fix you commited now got some strange saved_errno which isn't used? 
Comment 2 Stephan Kulow 2004-05-13 08:49:41 UTC
See http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=66381 and the referenced 
cli_RNetShareEnum shares from the same errno problem as cli_NetServerEnum 
did. I wonder though how why the broken pipe was lost though. 
I'd suggest setting errno = 0 before cli_api and then checking if errno is set 
by the called function and if not, define errno to something reasonable. For 
this function count == 0 is not necessarly an error, but when the 
DEBUG(...failed is hit, then the function shouldn't leave without errno set.

Richard, is this bug fixed ?  or not ?  I can't tell.
If it is fixed as per your comment in in change r616,
please close it as fixed.

Otherwise, please adds a comment on what needs to be done.

r616 is about the initial comment, the bug is really more a reminder. And the 
bug in #2 is real

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
