ZMGEXP running on ZCM server has a nasty bug:

If I open an image from /var/opt/novell/zenworks/content-repo/images, modify something like mark files as deleted and compress the image (File - Compress Image) a dialog pops up asking for a file name of the new compressed image. If I enter exactly the same file name as the source image file (without any path) normaly a message should pop up that this file already exists. ZMGEXP instead saves the file in /opt/novell/zenworks/preboot/java/lib which can result in running root volume out of space ...

This bug happened today on our primary ZCM server and nobody was able to log in to the ZCM server. The error message was "unable to login because user password was changed or user was deleted".
