Description Tully Gray 2012-07-09 20:49:57 UTC
On systems which use OpenLDAP to resolve UID/GIDs SeaMonkey will segfault (memory violation) after passing a constant string to glibc strtok_r() function.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure net-nds/openldap and sys-auth/nss_ldap (didn't test other LDAP NSS implementations) to resolve UID/GIDs.
2. Start SeaMonkey.

Actual Results:  
SeaMonkey segmentation faults in the glibc strtok_r() function.

Expected Results:  
SeaMonkey should just start up normally.

I can provide mostly complete stack traces if needed.  Also, I fixed the problem by using glibc malloc and strcpy functions to copy the constant string in charray.c from SeaMonkey source.
