I've just released a new version of the audit daemon. It can be
downloaded from It will also be
in rawhide soon. The ChangeLog is:

- In auditd, flush uid/gid caches when user/group added/deleted/modified
- Fixed various issues when dealing with corrupted logs
- In auditd, check if log_file is valid before closing handle

I usually do not make a release this quick after doing one. But there was an 
issue (209) reported on github that I think merits an immediate release. The 
issue is that if you create, delete, and create a new user with a new name, 
auditd may have stale cache entries for the older user.

If you use the enriched format (default setting), then this old association 
can get added to the record. That can cause ausearch to report actions 
attributed to the old user name. Normally people don't delete and create 
users quickly. By design, the cache is only 19 entries long and flushes the 
least recently used.

Please test audit-3.0.5 carefully - 3.0.4 had big changes.

SHA256: 7c54e73a6cafc8154ee6e37971efb1c8dd9ac2361daec429a52a7538c24fdc70

Please let me know if you run across any problems with this release.
