Description Ratul Gupta 2013-11-12 07:47:32 EST
trcsort, found in the package PVM, crashes with exit status 139.

The reporter has specifically crafted a shell file, which have been confirmed to crash the application with error output as:
/crash.sh: line 20:  7696 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) /usr/share/pvm3/bin/LINUXX86_64/tracer "`cat $DIR/argv_1.symb`" < "$DIR/file___dev__stdin.symb"

The complete crash dump and shell file is provided by the original reporter here:
