Description Wayne Davison 2004-05-30 00:32:36 UTC
Albert Chin reports:

I'm getting a SEGV on a FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE box. The client is Solaris
9/SPARC. Both boxes run 2.6.2.

The command I'm running is:
  $ rsync -arHRv --numeric-ids --delete --exclude=/opt/dist/cdrom \
  [paths] [server]:[path]

If I whittle down what appears in [paths], then it works.

$ gdb rsync rsync.core
gdb> bt
#0  0x280faf0d in strncmp () from /usr/lib/libc.so.4
#1  0x7 in ?? ()
#2  0x80597f7 in send_file_name (f=-1, flist=0x808a100,
    fname=0xbfbfe994 "etc/opt/TWWfsw", recursive=1, base_flags=1)

#7  0x8051ca9 in start_server (f_in=0, f_out=1, argc=2, argv=0x808a060)
    at main.c:577
#8  0x8052a89 in main (argc=2, argv=0x808a060) at main.c:1041

Based on #2, seems the SEGV is in make_file but #1 doesn't show the
function name and line number. Odd.

Fixed the crash bug in make_file().

When the --delete option iterates over all the specified [paths] it clears the
delete-file_list after each one.  This makes the "lastdir" pointer no longer
valid.	The appended patch fixes this bug and also a similar bug that could
affect the batch code.

The attached fix is in CVS, and will appear in the next version of rsync.
