Description hanishkvc 2006-08-03 15:25:29 EDT
Description of problem:
If there is no /etc/termcap file then xterm segfaults

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest FC5 xterm, based on yum update FC5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Rename /etc/termcap to something else
2. run xterm - it will segfault itself.
3. restore /etc/termcap
4. xterm will run properly 
  
Actual results:
xterm segfaults itself.

Expected results:
Either continue without termcap file or atleast display error message saying
"/etc/termcap missing" and then quit gracefully.
