Re: Ray Cromwell: Another Netscape Bug (and possible security
From: hbo () octel com (Howard B Owen)

On my BSDI2.0 machine running Netscape 1.1N, this causes a segmentation
fault and subsequent coredump. GDB reports nothing useable (stripped

  I cannot reproduce this bug on the following platforms:

        Solaris 2.5 beta/Netscape 1.1N
        SunOS 4.1.4/Netscape 1.0N
        Windows 95 Gold/Netscape 1.2N

  I get an error requestor stating the document contains no data on
1.1N and 1.2N. Netscape 1.0N just shows me a blank page.

Make sure your proxy is turned off, else the error is handled correctly.

Right you are. I can now reproduce the bug on all three platforms.

Mosaic 2.4 on SunOS 4.1.4 does not manifest the bug as far as I've
been able to determine. Neither does Microsoft Internet Explorer on
Windows 95.
