none Details | Review

Description Luis Medinas 2010-11-23 13:56:11 UTC
Bug originally reported on

"The following files set LD_LIBRARY_PATH in a way that allows empty elements
which means the current directory is included:

/usr/bin/tomboy (+: instead of :+:)
/usr/bin/tomboy-panel (+: instead of :+:)"

Banshee already fixed this issue on git. Attaching a patch to fix this issue on tomboy.

Comment 2 Sandy Armstrong 2010-11-23 14:17:04 UTC
Patch looks good, feel free to push to master and gnome-2-32 branch.
Comment 3 Luis Medinas 2010-12-03 13:48:02 UTC
Fixed in git master and gnome-2-32 branch. Most of the top distros already applied this patch but i guess it's better to roll a release.
