    4949== Common defects and their resolutions ==
    50 * 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.
     50* PARSE_ERROR - Not necessarily a code issue - this happens when Coverity's tools could not parse the code that was compiled for one reason or another. We don't intend to spend time investigating these as long as we have a significant number of other issues outstanding.
    5151
    5252* 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.
