hello all, Daniel

checking the core with the gdb, we have checked the variables at the
frames of the backtrace, to try to get the full sip message seems it
seemed truncated.
checking the buf variable of the frame 11 which theorically contains the
sip msg to parse we have the string

SIP/2.0 487 Request Terminated\r\nFrom: \"881237046977
\"<sip:881237046977 at;user=phone>;tag=B7jgc8jQ4m5pB\r\nTo:
<sip:5926053324 at>;tag=e0d50be-13c4-58d47cba-a2ed9808-36fa\r\nl\337K\016\213\347: \344\003\r\nCSeq: 104824272 INVITE\r\nVia: SIP/2.0/UDP L\263\264\016\020?\337\v\234\262\264\016 ;branch=\327\f\340\r\nVia: SIP/2.0/UDP \020?\337\v\234\262\264\016 :5080;received=;rport=5080;branch=\020?\337\v\234\262\264\016 \r\nContent-Length: 0\r\n\r\n

this is i guess how gdb parses the message, so i guess i cannot
introduce this like that in a xml sipp formal, since CRLF is represented
as \r\n, so others parts like l\337K\016\213\347: \344\003 i have no
idea what they are, because they also seem to be out of the ASCII table
anycase, seems the message is very bad formed, and the kamailio tries to
resolve the host of the Via and it gets nothing, so the function
get_hash1_case_raw is fed by a nul value and seems that the reason it

hope you can retrieve information from that message to find out what
kind of message it exactly is and see if it's possible to avoid
kamailio's crash in this scenario

best regards
