[pkg-bacula-devel] Bug#855645: btape fill test fails

Package: bacula
Version: 7.4.4+dfsg-5
Severity: normal


Upon installing a new tape drive, I did a "btape fill" test, as advised
in the Bacula manual. This worked when I last installed a tape drive
with version 5.2.6.

I am unsure about the severity, because While this does not compromise
the function of Bacula itself, being able to reliable test devices
before trusting them with backups is essential and right now an imporant
component of this test does not work correctly.

The problem has been identified upstream and is fixed via commit
