Description

I modified ​http://mdounin.ru/hg/nginx-tests to use valgrind.

Found by using auth_basic.t

Clearly $ and so on are not allocated.

Good catch, but I don't like the patch provided. Something like

diff --git a/src/core/ngx_crypt.c b/src/core/ngx_crypt.c
--- a/src/core/ngx_crypt.c
+++ b/src/core/ngx_crypt.c
@@ -137,7 +137,7 @@ ngx_crypt_apr1(ngx_pool_t *pool, u_char
 
     /* output */
 
-    *encrypted = ngx_pnalloc(pool, sizeof("$apr1$") - 1 + saltlen + 16 + 1);
+    *encrypted = ngx_pnalloc(pool, sizeof("$apr1$") - 1 + saltlen + 1 + 22 + 1);
     if (*encrypted == NULL) {
         return NGX_ERROR;
     }

should be enough. Care to provide a patch following http://nginx.org/en/docs/contributing_changes.html?
