Error description

  • ClearCase cleartool catcr command fails with a segmentation
    fault when attempting to print MVFS dependencies with long paths
    
    
    
    ClearCase 7.1.1.3
    
    
    RedHat and SuSE Clients
    
    
    
    To Reproduce:
    
       1)  Build a derived object with clearmake that has
    dependencies with very long pathnames
    
       2)  Once the target has been built, issue the following
    command:
               cleartool catcr ?derived_object?
    
           Where ?derived_object? was the name of the target built
    by clearmake
    
    When the catcr command begins to output the dependencies of the
    built derived object, the segfault occurs once the following
    output header is seen:
    
    ----------------------------
    MVFS objects:
    ----------------------------
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    
    
    Workaround:  none
