Description roger griffiths 2004-09-29 21:39:15 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040921 Description of problem: Probably not a bug, I must have something configured incorrectly, but... I am having the same symtoms reported in Bug #54391 (which was resolved last year) When I spell check any .tex file, I get a core dump and the emacs process runs away (100% CPU) and have to kill the process. The interesting part is that if I create a very simple file, say 'test.txt' and spell check (from within emacs) aspell works fine. If I copy that same file to test.tex and then try to spell check the file I get the hung process. Finally, copy the file to test.html, aspell works fine. I tried this simple method to identify if there was some characters within my tex documents that was causing aspell trouble. The core dumps are attributed to aspell, libaspell.so.15 aerror_bad_input (corruped library?) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): emacs-21.3-12; aspell-0.50.3-19.1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.As outlined above - create a file with just four lines of text, save the file as test.txt; spell check the file (from within emacs) - no problems. 2.Copy the above file to test.tex (at the command line), open in emacs, try to spell check, I get a core dump (aspell) and then have to kill the emacs process. 3. Copy the same file to test.html, open in emacs, spell check no problems. Additional info:

Looks like this is probably an aspell bug on x86_64. Seems to be ok with rawhide/fc3 test releases afaics.

can't reproduce with my machines; i'm not seeing this on current x86_64 builds either.
