Description Philippe Troin 2008-06-16 23:57:43 UTC
While trying to track down some crashes in kino, I found the following problems
with libraw1394:

 * There is a DIR* leak in raw1394_set_port().
 * Lots of data structures are not fully initialized when calling IEEE1394
ioctl()s.  These cause valgrind errors (benign, as valgrind does not know how to
interpret all ioctls.  However these also cause kino to crash in libraw1394. 
I've added a bunch of memset()s to prevent this problem from happening.

Meh. Patch is already public in the bz, I went ahead and sent it upstream on

an improvement, thanks again!
