"ping" command seems to reboot Nexus 10 with various ROMs
I'm an app developer, and have now received three reports of Nexus 10s, each with a different ROM, rebooting immediately after the Linux "ping" command is invoked.
ROMs include, but are not limited to:
mrRobinson's buttered AOKP (reported 26 April 2013)
ParanoidAndroid 3.90 (reported 3 August 2013)
CM10.2 (reported 17 August 2013)
I believe the early first case is a 4.2 ROM, while the second two are 4.3.
The exact ping command I'm invoking is:
ping -n -w 6 -c 5 somecomputername
The options on that command are:
-n (no hostname lookup, numeric output only)
-w 6 (6 second deadline)
-c 5 (stop after sending at most 5 ECHO_REQUEST packets)
I'm guessing just "ping somecomputername" will cause the problem though.
I'm posting this because I'm curious to see how widespread the issue might be. As it stands I have no idea where to report it. There may be a problem somewhere upstream of these ROM developers, but whether that's in AOSP or in common code used in a variety of ROMs is unknown to me.
If anyone could kindly check whether there device reboots as result of a ping command, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm especially interested in whether or not a stock device will do it. And obviously, please do bear in mind that the device might spontaneously reboot if you try this.
