for the two or three people left running SUA, and trying to rsync a UNIX box back on a corporate Windows server, you’ll probably wonder why rsync crashes…
$ ./rsync dbserver:: Memory fault (core dumped) $
Wonderful. So I know what you’re thinking, let’s debug it, right?!
$ gdb rsync

(gdb) set args dbserver::
Starting program: /dev/fs/C/Users/neozeed/tmp/rsync-3.1.0/rsync dbserver:: procfs: init_inferior, get_traced_signals line 4856, /proc/1375: Value too large to be stored in data type.
Well it turns out the bundled libintl on Interix is all screwed up. So edit the config.h, and remove the line:
#define HAVE_ICONV_H 1
rebuild, and all will be well.
