#203 closed defect (invalid)

klibc returns current directory instead of root

Reported by: Shmuel (Seymour J.) Metz Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: *none Version:
Severity: low Keywords: root, current, directory


I ran into a problem with the p7zip command 7za w:\temp\M.7z M:\ (mentioned in attempting to archive an entire volume and reported it to Ruediger Ihle and he responed:

I did some more testing and it turns out the klibc is the culprit! The problem is, that when the functions opendir()/readdir() are asked to retrieve the content of a root directory (i.e. "X:/*"), they erroneously return the content of the *current* directory on that drive.

Note: I gave this a low priority because I've been able to bypass my problems with zip, and it runs faster than p7zip. However, I can't guaranty that it's not important to other customers running into the same problem in a different application.
