Bug Description

Binary package hint: apt

I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 dev and apt I wanted to download some sources with "apt-get source sun-java6-bin sun-java6-plugin". apt choosed for both packages sun-java6 as source but on sun-java6-plugin it doesn't work. It seems something isn't working correct if a source is choosen more than one time because "apt-get source sun-java6-plugin" is working fine.

If somebody wants to reproduce it with these packages the following source is needed:
deb-src oneiric main

I can confirm that the problem exists on Precise as well, using the PPA from above. However, when for example downloading 'apt-get source apt apt-utils' it works. I can also confirm the work around of downloading the packages individually.

Changed in apt (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

It looks like FindSrc fails at times as SrcRecs in is mangled by the first search. Moving pkgSrcRecords SrcRecs(*List); within the loop over the command line supplied file list fixes the error, albeit brutally. A better way might be to make sure that SrcRecs is not destroyed during the search.
