@frodr

Here's th link containing some info and references to other symptoms

http://utilitybase.com/forum/index.php?action=vthread&forum=2&topic=1908

Yes, it broke some stuff, here it was tetex (latex) port. Unix ports with putenv() (clib2 and probably newlib) calls will suffer from improper behaviour when setting env vars.

If you don't have a problem application, then don't bother using the patch.
The patch just tweaks the functions default semantics for those
rare programs that don't specify exactly what they want done and
rely on the "default" behaviour.


@Thematic 
Sorry, but I think it may be somewhat difficult for me to test
and adjust the patch for a "something or other".

what is the exact problem first (have you got example) and how this patch could correct the problem ????

Even if the technical explanation is allways necessary, simple user need also examples about the problem.

Even though this patch makes sense I had to give it up since it breaks something or other.
