> xmodmap -L
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

100% reproducible.
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2003-08-28 03:27:55 EDT
xmodmap -L is an undocumented commandline switch.  "man xmodmap" does not
show the existance of this switch.  At a first glance, it appears to be
a shortcut alias to doing:

xmodmap -e "clear lock"

pts/8 mharris@zod:~$ xmodmap -e "clear lock"
pts/8 mharris@zod:~$

The documented method appears to function as documented.  Since this bug
is a bug in undocumented feature, while it should be fixed, it definitely
is not a Cambridge blocker in my eyes, at least I can't see us not shipping
the OS until this is fixed.  I've tested it on a RHL 7.1 and 6.2 system
and the same thing happens.

I'll briefly run this through gdb and see if I can figure it out in 10-15
minutes or so and fix, but I'm removing the blocker status unless someone
can show me a security vulnerability this causes.
