Subject: scan-build results, part 1


scan-build is complaining about "Logic error	Stack address stored into
global variable" in single.c.

495	void do_single_crack(struct db_main *db)
496	{
497	    struct rpp_context ctx;
499	    single_db = db;
500	    rule_ctx = &ctx;
501	    single_init();
502	    single_run();
503	    single_done();
504	}
Address of stack memory associated with local variable 'ctx' is still
referred to by the global variable 'rule_ctx' upon returning to the
caller. This will be a dangling reference.

I don't know if rules_ctx's value is used later on or not.
