Description tymm 1999-09-06 23:33:38 UTC
if two environment variables w/same name come consecutively,
the second won't be purged.  Response from glibc development
folks is "get glibc 2.1.2".  A number of security related
packages depend on the function, so it's rather important
that it works right.

Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-09-17 11:41:59 UTC
glibc 2.1.2 will be released in the next version of Red Hat Linux.
This bug alone does not mandate an errata.
