Those applications are in serious breach of both the FHS
recommendations and POSIX requirements.

I would imagine they have a vested interest in fixing that problem.

The example I can come up with is a production system where 4 parties
are involved: end-user application, management-layer, database layer,
database server. Of those the management layer has been declared out-
service (dead, no maint) but the whole of the suite still depends on
that for at least two more years (some weird law that causes this
requirement). The owner of that product is unwilling to make any
to the product. No CVE fixes, not bug fixes, no feature request or
whatever, so the engineers responsible for the end-user application
the database layer both have to work around those issues.

Working with old propriatary software sometimes really takes away the
fun out of ICT :(

And you're running this on Tumbleweed?

I'm pretty sure you're not expecting us to support such bad practice
indefinately, right?
