There's an issue with cups-polld that I've been investigating for some
time now. When I attempted to reproduce it under a debugger, another
bug surfaced, I'm just about to file a bug report with CUPS
developers. After implementing a workaround against the second bug,
the original issue doesn't show up at all. I'm suspecting that it's
something dependent on the optimization level.
with -xO2 bug1 is triggered, but bug2 is not
with -xO0 bug1 is not triggered, but bug2 is.
Since bug2 seems to be relatively easy to fix, I got working binaries
by compiling cups with -xO0 and thus hiding bug1.
The dilemma is as follows:
- optimized binaries work for most people but fail miserably in my
- unoptimized binaries work fine in my environment, but I feel it's
wrong to ship unoptimized binaries from OpenCSW
I'm stuck here. I can't debug it. I can't ship it. Help!
P.S. I'll do more testing, perhaps I'll be able to reproduce bug1, but
I haven't been so far.
