HP-UX 11i: measurably better TCO!
 Advisory Information
 

RELEASE DATE: 21 May 2004

DESCRIPTION
An application with a graphical user interface may fail when performing a drag-and-drop or cut-and-paste operation.  The problem occurs when an X Toolkit library routine such as XtAppSetSelectionTimeout() or XtAppAddTimeOut() is called with a very large timeout value.  This can cause the internal representation of time values to overflow their data types leading to incorrect timeout entries and application failures such as segmentation faults. 
 
SCOPE
The following versions are affected:
  • HP Tru64 UNIX 5.1B PK 3
  • HP Tru64 UNIX 5.1B PK 2
  • HP >Tru64 UNIX 5.1A PK 6
  • HP Tru64 UNIX 4.0G PK 4
  • HP Tru64 UNIX 4.0F PK 8
 
RESOLUTION
HP is releasing the following Early Release Patch kits (ERPs) publicly for use by any customer. The ERP kits use dupatch to install and will not install over any Customer Specific Patches (CSPs) that have file intersections with the ERP.

The fix contained in the ERP kits is scheduled to be available in the following mainstream releases.

  • HP Tru64 UNIX 5.1B PK 4
  • HP Tru64 UNIX 5.1A PK 7

ERP kits are available for the following versions. The kits distribute the following files: /usr/lib/libXt.a and /usr/shlib/libXt.so.
