Bug Description

Binary package hint: aprsd

aprsd:
  Installed: 1:2.2.5-13-3.1ubuntu1
  Candidate: 1:2.2.5-13-3.1ubuntu1

Running system is:
Linux bewdley 2.6.22-14-server #1 SMP Tue Feb 12 03:10:53 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Description: Ubuntu 7.10
Release: 7.10

Aprsd segfaults when connecting with Xastir. It happens during the authentication process and looks like it may be a problem running on a 64-bit machine.

Core was generated by `src/aprsd'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
#0 0x000000000042cc84 in TCPSessionThread (p=0x657fa0) at servers.cpp:1854
1854 << ends ;

Atleast these will cause trouble on a 64-bit machine

src/servers.cpp: if (((idxInvalid = vd.find_first_of(";!@#$%~^&*():=\"\\<>[]",0,20)) == string::npos)
src/servers.cpp: if (idxInvalid != string::npos){
src/servers.cpp: if (((idxInvalid = vd.find_first_of(";!@#$%~^&*():=\"\\<>[]",0,20)) == string::npos)
src/servers.cpp: if (idxInvalid != string::npos){

aprsd runs fine on a 32-bit system, but would not want to run a virtual server just for that.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Can you try with latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.

The issue still exists with 64-bit Ubuntu 9.04 and aprsd version 1:2.2.5-13-4.

So far I have used a 32-bit Ubuntu virtual server in vmware-server to work around this issue, but it would be nice to be ablt to run aprsd natively on the 64-bit host OS Ubuntu 9.04 with vmware-server. It is a bit overkill :).

Likewise I to have suffered some ill effect of this bug and have resorted to using a closed source alternate called javAPRSSrv. However I believe that this issue should be reviewed...

segmentation fault on amd64 but all OK on i386

easy way to replicate is run application then attempt a connection to any of the available ports defined and the program will terminate!

I realise that the amateur population may be small, but the use of this program is still an important aspect for many that do.

I'm happy to do some debugging if this is an issue... but I'm by no means a programmer myself! ;)
