I am 100% sure that my colleague found fundamentals of this bug.
On SPARC linux is used thread safe version of gethostbyname
genthostbyname_r. This function have third argument char buffer. But if
this buffer is not correctly aligned (on SPARC / 4 ) program crashed
with BUSS ERROR. I attach demonstrate program to test this issue. If you
change size of buffer from 1002 to 1000 program start working.
I mean that simple workaround on SPARC is not use gethostbyname_r.
I confirm the bug, it is even present on Sarge. Strangely it is not
present on mips.
Yes I see this bug on Sid,Etch.
