Ok, forced -O0, thanks!

I have found it, I think. It's a compilation problem (I bet gcc 6 or 6.1 trying to be smart): const static gchar * screen_get_sdir() { static gchar sdir[256]; if (!pw) pw = getpwuid(getuid()); if (!pw) return NULL; g_snprintf(sdir, sizeof(sdir), SCREEN_SDFORMT, SCREEN_SOCKPATH, pw->pw_name); return sdir; } gboolean screen_get_sessions(HostNode *n) { if (n->screens) { g_list_free(n->screens); n->screens = NULL; } const gchar *sdir = screen_get_sdir(); The static sdir in screen_get_sdir doesn't get deallocated at the end of the function, because of the static. sdir is not defined in screen_get_sessions after the function call when compiled with -O2 (gdb says it has been optimized out). With -O0, it works. As performance is not that crucial, and this version of apt-dater is probably not maintained anymore, I think forcing -O0 is sufficient.

cousinm: No idea. Upgrading a group of hosts and connecting to their sessions works ok for me.

I'm having a very weird problem, I cannot attach detached sessions… For instance if I run an upgrade on a group of hosts, I cannot use n to attach to their session. apt-dater doesn't even list sessions… Do you have this problem too ? It used to work a while ago (I'd say one or two months ago)

cousinm: Yes, is required for connecting to hosts. Added, thanks!

Shouldn't it depend on screen ?
