[Pkg-net-snmp-devel] Bug#765289: misformats enums when callback is in use

Package: libsnmp-perl
Severity: normal
Tags: patch upstream


When using e.g. gettable (or simply getnext, as far as I can see,
but I've only tried with gettable) and a callback, the value of
UseEnums is ignored, and you always get just the number.

Attached is a simple patch to fix the issue; it seems one just forgot
to copy the code to set the right flags from the synchronous path into
the callback path. 

I haven't had luck with upstream responding to patches, so I'm sending it to
the BTS in the hope that it gets included for jessie, but it should of course
go upstream as well.
