I noticed that I am encountering a few "buffer overflows" but I don't see any relevant reports in bugzilla, so it might be something specific to my system. Could someone confirm before I enter a bunch of bugs?

The two executables that come to mind, are /usr/bin/dvd+rw-format and /usr/sbin/bacula-fd but I have seen a few others as well... This is on x86_64 with "latest" packages from Factory.

# dvd+rw-format
*** buffer overflow detected ***: dvd+rw-format terminated
======= Backtrace: =========
I can confirm this on i586.

Please report all these bugs. They are not specific for your system. It's an enhanced feature in the latest glibc to report possible buffer overflows due to "bad coding". More packages could be affected and those should be found asap.
