Description Rene Tapia 2005-07-21 16:42:11 UTC
Mounted user home directory on:
Debian 2.6.11
cifs-1.34 (mount options: serverino, mapchars)
OpenOffice.org 1.1.3
KDE 3.3

Debian 2.4.27-2
Samba 3.0.10-1


1) Use cifs to mount a user's home directory with "serverino" AND "mapchars"
options turned on

2) Start OpenOffice's Writer. Writer starts with out a problem. Close it.

3) Start OpenOffice's Writer again.

Writer won't start at all after the first time. It either hangs or it tries to
start and then it dies.

To be able to start Writer.

NOTE 1: This works fine with no "mapchars" option specified (just "serverino").

NOTE 2: If you remove all files on the user's home directory and login again,
you'll be able to start Writer the first time again.

I think this is the same problem that is fixed by bug #2883.  That fix HAS NOT
made it into Linus' tree yet.
Comment 2 Steve French 2005-08-31 09:21:20 UTC
Should be fixed in 2.6.13 kernel and cifs version 1.35
