(ITS#5251) getaddrinfo might return duplicate results
Full_Name: Ralf Haferkamp
OS: Linux, glibc 2.7
Submission from: (NULL) (126.96.36.199)
Newer versions of glibc (2.7) in my case might return duplicate addrinfo structs
in the results under certain circumstances. According to the friendly glibc
maintainer ;) this is not a bug:
Unfortunately he doesn't give a reason for this change in behavior.
BTW, I didn't find any reference in the related RFCs that state that the
getaddrinfo results need to be unique (nor the opposite).
In my current builds I simply patched slapd to check the getaddrinfo() results
for uniqueness in the slap_get_listner_addresses() function. Has anybody a
better idea how to fix this?
