Hi Peter,

I can't say exactly when the issue appeared, but I noticed it in version 2020.05 which had glib 2.64.4 and nm 1.22.10, and version 2020.11.x still has it. Based on that, I would presume 2020.08.x has it too. The reference to the glib2 bug in my patch mentions the segfault started appearing in Ubuntu after updating to 2.63.x.

I don't know if you usually backport these changes that can affect other projects. However, I can tell you it was problematic for us because it caused nmcli to randomly crash ~5-10% of the time on various commands. We're now using a fork of 2020.11 with the patch applied without issue so far.

What should we do about the stable branches (2020.02.x / 2020.08.x /
2020.11.x)? When was this issue introduced?

I see:

2020.02.x: glib 2.62.5, nm 1.20.4
2020.08.x: glib 2.64.4, nm 1.22.10
2020.11.x: glib 2.64.4, nm 1.22.10

Master had the same glib / nm versions before this patch, so 2020.08.x /
2020.11.x are presumably also affected? What about 2020.02.x?

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
