Name        : libtirpc
Product     : Fedora 19
Version     : 0.2.3
Release     : 4.fc19

Summary     : Transport Independent RPC Library
Description :
This package contains SunLib's implementation of transport-independent
RPC (TI-RPC) documentation.  This library forms a piece of the base of
Open Network Computing (ONC), and is derived directly from the
Solaris 2.3 source.

TI-RPC is an enhanced version of TS-RPC that requires the UNIX System V
Transport Layer Interface (TLI) or an equivalent X/Open Transport Interface
(XTI).  TI-RPC is on-the-wire compatible with the TS-RPC, which is supported
by almost 70 vendors on all major operating systems.  TS-RPC source code
(RPCSRC 4.0) remains available from several internet sites.

Update Information:

Race on getnetconfig.c leads to crash during fclose, endnetconfig, getnetconfig

  Using tirpc (0.2.1-6) instead of the RPC functions in glibc there are segfaults on file operations, mostly on fclose() in endnetconfig() but sometimes on fgets() in getnetconfig().
Debugging they all seem to be due to NULL nc_file.

There are multiple threads involved, according to the included README the clnt_* functions should be thread safe. But there are  race condition here.
