gpg-agent patch missing

Reported by Benjamin Donnachie | January 25th, 2011 @ 12:59 AM | in 2.0.18 (closed)

Moving to new devel tree, my patch to prevent launchd executing gpg-agent for root user was not applied:

+    /* When running under launchd control, only start for real users */
+    /* Do this check early to avoid filling logs */
+#ifndef HAVE_W32_SYSTEM
+       if (1 == launchd_child && geteuid() < 500)
+       {
+               log_error ("launchd only supported for real users - ie UID > 500\n");
+               exit (1);
+       }     

Impact: Minor; affected systems will have gpg-agent invoked for root user.

New release will be generated by end of week.
