Bug#187391: libc0.3-dev: weirdness with sockaddr_un

Package: libc0.3-dev
Severity: normal


the following code seems to be compliant with the Glibc documentation
referred to sockaddr_un, as it provides a char* as the second component
of the struct:

  #include <sys/socket.h>
  #include <sys/un.h>
  main ()
    sockaddr_un test = { AF_LOCAL, "" };

however, when built with g++ (and not with gcc) on GNU/Hurd, it reports
mismatch errors:

  test.c: In function `int main()':
  test.c:6: invalid conversion from `const char*' to `unsigned char'

which is strange that it expects a char when both the documentation
and <sys/un.h> agree that it should be a char*.

the code in question compiles fine on GNU/Linux.
