     Type:  defect     |      Status:  new                
 Priority:  low        |   Milestone:  Varnish 2.1 release
Component:  varnishd   |     Version:  2.1.2              
 Severity:  minor      |    Keywords:  Null Pointer       
 vcc_compile.c: line 370 of 682

         sp->name = strdup(name);

 strdup could return NULL, but sp->name is never checked.  There is no
 assertion here which I gather should be.
