Applications that use the /usr/lib/libxml2.so.2 library might fail intermittently with a core dump if the xmlValidateDocument() function is used. This problem is caused by a stack overrun in the library for documents that have been validated by using the xmlValidateDocument() function.
The problem is only encountered if the code is compiled against a libxml2 release that was introduced prior to the Solaris 9 4/03 release. Then, the code is executed on one of the following releases:
Solaris 9 4/03
Solaris 9 8/03
Solaris 9 12/03
Workaround: Apply the following patches to all Solaris 9 releases:
For SPARC systems, apply patch 114014-07.
For x86 systems, apply patch 114015-07.
Applications that were compiled against libxml2.so on a system using the Solaris 9 4/03, Solaris 9 8/03, or Solaris 9 12/03 release need to be recompiled if libxml2.so feature test macros were used. This recompilation is required because the version of libxml2.so that shipped in the Solaris software has been reverted to 2.4.23, due to the binary incompatibility. This binary incompatibility was present in the 2.5.4 version of libxml2.
The Removable Media auto run capability in the CDE desktop environment has been temporarily removed from the Solaris 9 12/03 software.
Workaround: To use the auto run function for a CD-ROM or another removable media volume, you must do one of the following:
Run the volstart program from the top level of the removable media file system.
Follow the instructions that are included with the CD for access from outside of CDE.
dtmail crashes after connecting with the IMAP server if the FontList option is specified when dtmail is launched from the command line. See the following example:
/usr/dt/bin/dtmail -xrm "Dtmail*FontList: -*-r-normal-*:"
The following error message is displayed:
This problem occurs in both the C and ja locales.
Workaround: Do not specify the FontList option when you launch dtmail from the command line.
If you try to read an email message with many long lines in any of the Solaris 9 12/03 Unicode or UTF-8 locales, CDE Mailer (dtmail) appears to hang. The message does not display immediately.
Workaround: Choose one of the following workarounds:
Enlarge the dtmail Mailbox window to accommodate 132 columns.
Disable the Complex Text Layout feature by following these steps:
Change directories to your system's locale directory.
# cd /usr/lib/locale/locale-name
In the previous example, locale-name refers to the name of your system's Solaris 9 12/03 Unicode or UTF-8 locale.
Rename the locale layout engine category.
# mv LO_LTYPE LO_LTYPE-
Rename the category for the locale layout engine to the original name (LO_LTYPE) before you apply any patches to the locale layout engine.
After you delete the last item from the desktop, the item is restored from the handheld device to the desktop when you synchronize your handheld device. Examples of items that you might delete, and then have restored, are the last appointment in your Calendar or the last address in the Address Manager.
Workaround: Manually delete the last entry from the handheld device prior to synchronization.
If you exchange multibyte data between a PDA device and Solaris CDE, the data might be corrupted in both environments.
Workaround: Back up your data on your personal computer with the PDA backup utility before you run the SolarisTM PDASync application. If you accidentally exchange multibyte data and corrupt that data, restore your data from the backup.
