|Summary||0000663: ncFTP from ncftp-3.2.5-os2-20131222b crashes when HOME not set|
|Description||Attempting to run ncftp.exe with no home directory set in the environment results in a SIGSEV.|
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Unset home env var.|
2. Run ncftp.exe.
Killed by SIGSEGV pid=0x002f ppid=0x0024 tid=0x0001 slot=0x0081 pri=0x0200 mc=0x0001 ps=0x0010 C:\USR\LOCAL\BIN\NCFTP.EXE NCFTP 0:0001b00e cs:eip=005b:0002b00e ss:esp=0053:0082ec80 ebp=0082eca8 ds=0053 es=0053 fs=150b gs=0000 efl=00010246 eax=00000000 ebx=0082eee0 ecx=ffffffff edx=fffffffb edi=00000000 esi=00000000 Process dumping was disabled, use DUMPPROC / PROCDUMP to enable it.
As this is not likely to be all that common, we can put this on a back burner or close as WONTFIX. I was just thinking that there should be a more graceful way to tell the poor idiot user that we don't know where home is!

||It's an OS/2 specific bug... in fact, I'm not sure why the code in question is necessary.... will do some more testing when I get a minute...|
||Actually, Paul, of greater importance are 0000589, 0000590, and 0000622, as wildcards not working can be a real pain. This, however, would be an issue for Warp 4 users with no HOME variable set.|
||Closing this, as I think it was fixed some time ago. That said, I've been using ncFTP 3.2.6 from Netlabs for some time, and this has not been an issue. We can revisit if you feel the need to update the port to the latest code, Paul.|
