RE: slurpd core dump on exit (ITS#2363)
My initial tests demonstrate that the core dump no longer occurs on
When will these changes make their way into an "official" release?
Also, during testing of the HEAD I found a problem in the configure
script relating to Berkley DB version tests.
On line 19210 a comment reads "Requires 4.0 or later" but the test
that follows has a preprocessor condition of:
if (DB_VERSION_MAJOR >= 4 && DB_VERSION_MINOR >= 1)
The DB_VERSION_MINOR test should actually be ">=0".
