xmodmap -L segfaults

Segmentation fault (core dumped)
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"
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.
