Random bug is random

Ran into the following bug today:

Warning:  popen(/usr/bin/rrdtool info
[function.popen]: Cannot allocate memory in
/www/cacti/htdocs/lib/rrd.php on line 97

Too much googling lead to : http://bugs.cacti.net/view.php?id=1359

So the bottom line is that even in the open source world odds are you’ll be hearing “Fixed in the next version”

    Looks like you would be able to patch that in quite easily though.

    Isn’t every bug fixed in a ‘next’ version, maintenance release or otherwise? :)

    Patching looks pretty easy and actually the upgrade path on Cacti looks like a breeze :)
