    4949== Common defects and their resolutions ==
    5050* STACK_USE - Not really a bug. It turns out that the new version of the Coverity software automatically enabled this checker with default values, when it had been disabled before. This checker is usually used to analyze for defects in kernel or embedded system code which have tight stack limits. For Haiku, "Ignore" is probably the best resolution for now.
     51
     52* SECURE_CODING - Usually a warning about potential buffer/string overflow. In most cases, replacing a strcpy() with strlcpy() (DO NOT use strncpy!), sprintf() with snprintf(), or strcat() with strlcat() will satisfy this checker.
