Re: shtool hangs on Solaris (ITS#2134)

OpenLDAP Software incorporates GNU shtool 1.6.0 (which has
been shtoolized for our needs).  As you were able to isolate
the issue to shtool(1), the issue should be reported to the
shtool maintainers as they are better suited to diagnose the
problem and, if appropriate, provide a fix and/or workaround.
Information on shtool bug reporting can be found at

As it is not our practice to track issues in software maintained
by others, this report will be closed.  A new issue should be
opened if and when an updated shtool(1) is made available which
address this problem.
