Description Joe Kelsey 2002-08-19 16:00:06 UTC
	ksh93 dumps core seemingly at random.

Fix: Apparantly, a fix is pending at AT&T.  The real problem is in
	sfio and/or stak.

	Until then, fix the symptoms with the following patch to
	src/cmd/ksh93/sh/path.c (which I placed in
How-To-Repeat: 	in a sufficiently large glob request, say

grep stdio */*

	watch the core dump.  (my example generates a glob list of 194
	elements.  I don't know the exact repeat parameteres.)

I just received the following patch from David Korn.  It appears to fix 
the problem.  I don't kow if you want to install this patch or just wait 
for another release of the sources.  I did not get any indication from 
him about timing of a new release.
