Tue 18 Oct 2005 08:54:22 AM UTC, original submission:

The file source.cpp has a global function 'findusername' which does a const char * assigment with Process::getEnv (..). That const char * is used in a strcmp whithout checking the value of the const char*. The const char* could be NULL which will cause a segmentatio fault.
Attached a patch which checks the const char * before calling strcmp.
