I'm having the folowing problem with OpenLDAP 2.3.20 (stable 20060227)
which acts as a replica.
the segfault occurs when my master LDAP server which is 2.0.27 sends an
ldap modify on a DN that doesn't exists. ( I know this shouldn't happen
because this means that there is a synchonisation problem )
I think it would be better to have an error instead of a segmentation

e is NULL in the call of cache_return_entry_rw()

Following is the backtrace of the crash.

I hope this will help.

Kind regards.

Thanks for the report. :)

On a side note, the bug tracking system is at:

<http://www.openldap.org/its/>, if you want to file this there so it is tracked properly.

I'll also note that it looks like you are using LDBM in OL 2.3, which is generally recommended against for OL 2.2-OL 2.3. It will be removed from the OL 2.4 release branch. You may wish to switch off of using LDBM, see:


for the various reasons why.
