What do i need to do then ? Do i have to check the sources or would a
registry tree be enough to catch the bug ?

The code was compiled via -ansi and -pedantic...

I do not have the "copyright" because the original code is from FSF's
glibc and i just modified it to "fit". I read the contribution: Now I know
the difference between OpenSource and Copyleft. I actually do not own the
code i wrote but modified free code. I can "sign over" the "copyleft" to
FSF. Is that what you want ? If so, I'd like to do so and send you what i
"coded".
