First, this is the code part where the bug occurs:

> static void pvfs_wait_timeout(struct tevent_context *ev,
>                               struct tevent_timer *te, struct timeval t,
>                               void *private_data)
> {
>         struct pvfs_wait *pwait = talloc_get_type(private_data,
>                                                   struct pvfs_wait);
>         struct ntvfs_request *req = pwait->req;
>         pwait->reason = PVFS_WAIT_TIMEOUT;
>         talloc_increase_ref_count(req);
>         ntvfs_async_setup(pwait->req, pwait);
>         talloc_free(req);
> }

I doubt if the "talloc_increase_ref_count" is really needed and I think that this is the cause of the "free" problem. Since "talloc_increase_ref_count" adds the "NULL" context as parent and then a "talloc_free" isn't possible anymore (works only with exactly *one* parent). We had to change it in a "talloc_unlink" - but I don't know for which parent (for NULL?). So maybe someone who wrote the code could enlighten us how to fix.

I think I add metze to the bug - he also like tridge has a good knowledge about the s4 file server (code).

Hi Matthieu,

Can you give me a way to reproduce this? Maybe a smbclient command
or a smbtorture command?

Cheers, Tridge

I think this should be fixed with commit d31b6360d64eb821da07f4342093d1323db7b4dd

Please test the fix, and let me know if the segv happens again.

Thanks for the bug report!

Cheers, Tridge
