Submission + - 25 year old BSD bug finally fixed

NaishWS writes: Marc Balmer has just found a 25-year-old flaw that would occur when using Samba to serve files off an MS-DOS file system causing the system to crash. He found it when an OpenBSD user emailed him about the issue, this was then traced to a workaround Samba used to function correctly on BSD systems. This bug has been in every BSD system, including Mac OS X for 25 years. Balmer states that the fix was quite trivial and jokingly apologised for it taking 25 years to fix.
