Re: Http get commands return a bad results.
:> I first had the problem with cups-1.1.22-source.tar.bz2 when updating
:> the cups port. I had corrupted files from several ftp sites and I
:> remember that the file sizes were different each time.
:> I just used 'fetch' to get the same file and it is corrupted once again,
:> but the filesize is correct this time. I'd be happy to send you the
:> file but I have no ftp server available to me. May I upload it? (8MB)
:I noticed that fetch compiled with propolice and SOME ftp sites do not
:play well together. They ALWAYS play well when some proxy is involved -
:even on same server! Basically fetch complains that file is corrupted
:(size 0) despite transferring it in full. But this is nothing new -
:was/is present on FreeBSD with propolice for some time.
That isn't good... it means that there is likely a buffer overflow
in fetch somewhere. propolice reorders the way space is allocated
on the stack for declarations.
In this case, however, the bug is clearly in SACK.
