Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/3] libext2fs: ext2fs_node_split

FYI, while doing some more testing, I found another bug in this patch.
It doesn't reallocate and update the handle->path array, with the net
result future operations will result in a core dump as we overrun the
handle->path array and fetch an illegal pointer from handle->path[n].buf.

The fix follows....
