[Bug 712670] New: Problem with FW_SERVICES_ACCEPT_EXT in /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2

Summary: Problem with FW_SERVICES_ACCEPT_EXT in
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.4
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.4
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: YaST2
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I have the following 3 lines in etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2:


The first two lines are in fact one line.

At a certain moment, I can relate it a YaST session, these lines are changed


so the first line above is moved out of the FW_SERVICES_ACCEPT_EXT definition.
This effectively disables what should be achieved, limiting the amount of ssh
tcp sessions to 3 per minute from one IP address.

# ls -l /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 34590 Aug 14 22:25 /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2

shows the date of last change of that file

# zcat /var/log/YaST2/y2log-1.gz | grep SuSEfirewall | grep '14 22'
2011-08-14 22:25:08 <1> eik114(5855) [YCP] Service.ycp:403 Enabling service
2011-08-14 22:25:08 <1> eik114(5855) [YCP] Service.ycp:403 Enabling service

shows YaST activity at that moment.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Don't know

Expected Results:
The line in SuSEfirewall2 should be left alone

It happened several times earlier, but had the file SuSEfirewall2 changed
before I could relate it to something happening at that moment.

Below is the last line of a zypper session show in the file /var/log/zypper.log
2011-08-14 22:25:02 <1> eik114(5631) [zypp]
Lockfile cleaned. (5631)

So a few seconds before zypper ended.
