UserDir maps to root directory for nonexistant users





------- Additional Comments From slive@apache.org  2002-08-02 01:43 -------
I have seen this problem reported once before on Solaris 8 using GCC 2.95.3.
The developers have been unable to reproduce the problem, but the person
who reported it said that it went away if they compiled with optimization
turned off (-O0).

In general, I believe that this problem can only be the result of a seriously
misperforming compiler/library.  Apache just uses a normal syscall to see
if the user exists.  But since this is a potentially serious security problem,
I won't close the report until some of the developers get a chance to look
at it.
