Subject [PATCH] avoid crashing when given invalid user/group ids on win32
Date Sun, 22 Jan 2006 01:07:21 GMT
I'm not sure this is entirely correct, but here's a quick patch to
correct the problem I reported earlier about crashing in testuser.c
when we pass bogus uid/gid values into apr_uid_name_get and

The fix is to use IsValidSid to confirm the validity of the uid/gid
before we try to call LookupAccountSid.

The one thing I'm really not sure of is what should be done on non-NT
systems.  The MSDN docs say that IsValidSid didn't show up until NT
workstation 3.1.  Then again, they say the same thing about
LookupAccountSid, and we seem to use that unconditionally, so perhaps
it's ok.

Anyway, if a win32-savy person could take a quick look at the patch
and tell me if it looks sane to them I'd appreciate it.
