Description Uli M 2005-09-09 04:49:47 UTC
I got an early morning call that people can't log in anymore, that was because
all their passwords were set equal.
UPDATE's don't have a where clause because this doesn't work as expected:

if (query->update) {
    query->part1[strlen(query->part1) - 1] = '\0';
    query->part1 = talloc_asprintf_append(query->part1,
                                                                   " WHERE %s =

In talloc_asprintf_append it is not strlen that's used for calculcating the
length of the string to append to, maybe it should be???

Here a simple example I checked, result is ONE and not ONEFOUR:

query->part1 = talloc_asprintf(query,"ONE TWO THREE");

My one liner solution for pdb_sql.c: making a copy of part1 before feeding it to

                query->part1[strlen(query->part1) - 1] = '\0';
                query->part1 = talloc_asprintf(query,query->part1);
                query->part1 =
                                                                   " WHERE %s =
