For cvs-1.12.12

IMHO server_hostname intialized at main.c:843

But used at main.c:764 -> pserver_authenticate_connection() -> gserver_authenticate_connection()

I try retry crash for current version

I need to know if this can be duplicated using the version of CVS in the CVS repository. I recently checked in a change to make sure server_hostname was always initialized for an unrelated reason and this may prevent this crash. Instructions for getting the source from CVS are here: <http://savannah.nongnu.org/cvs/?group=cvs>. If you can still crash your version of CVS, a stack trace from the core dump would be informative.

Closing, since I need more information and the reporter did not provide his or her email address to be cc'd on updates to this issue. If the reporter sees this and would like to respond, please reopen this bug.

Variable server_hostname unintialthed before enter gserver_authenticate_connection() called from pserver_authenticate_connection().
