Sat 13 Apr 2013 02:30:22 PM UTC, original submission:

There is a problem in buffer.c (we saw it from version 1.11.17 to 1.11.23) if configuration not SHUTDOWN_SERVER and START_RSH_WITH_POPEN_RW is set. We will get an ELSE IF statement without an IF statement, which is not a valid construction according to the C grammar (function: stdio_buffer_shutdown). The original code is shown bellow and we sent a file attached (buffer-modified-flaviomedeiros.c) with the correction. This problem has not been submitted before.

if (buf->input) {

if (current_parsed_root->method != server_method)
# endif

# ifndef NO_SOCKET_TO_FD
/* shutdown() sockets */
if (S_ISSOCK (s.st_mode))
shutdown (fileno (bc->fp), 0);
# endif /* NO_SOCKET_TO_FD */

/* Can't be set with SHUTDOWN_SERVER defined */
else if (pclose (bc->fp) == EOF)
error (1, errno, "closing connection to %s",
closefp = 0;
