Description Reilly Grant 2023-09-18 13:58:30 UTC
After upgrading to net-misc/ntpsec-1.2.2 I observe a frequent crash in It appears that a similar bug was reported to the Debian project and fixed in July:

Can the patch from that fix be included in Gentoo?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade from net-misc/ntpsec-1.2.1 to net-misc/ntpsec-1.2.2. 
2. Allow it to run for a period of time.

Actual Results:  
Periodic segmentation faults in

Expected Results:  
No crashes.

Packaging 1.2.2a would include just the fix.
