Additional info:
Valgrind found a bug in _XmLabelConvert() on openmotif-2.3.0/lib/Xm/Label.c.
Array "targs[]" has 5 room, but targs[5] and targs[6] were set 
because of UTF8_SUPPORTED macro.

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2008-07-02 13:14:51 UTC
This has been fixed upstream:

Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested

products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update

Comment 3 Akira YOSHIYAMA 2008-07-04 06:51:05 UTC
Thank you for your reply. I have a question.
The upstream fix makes "targs[]" size to 6, but _XmLabelConvert() looks
being able to set targs[6]. Is it ok?

Comment 4 Thomas Woerner 2008-07-04 10:40:43 UTC
I also thought about that and contacted upstream.

Comment 6 Thomas Woerner 2008-07-09 15:20:18 UTC
Upstream agrees. The size of targs is now 7:

Comment 7 Akira YOSHIYAMA 2008-07-10 12:23:34 UTC
Oh! ... ok, thank you for your support.
Please apply it for the next rpm release.
