Description Jared Smith-Mickelson 2003-09-11 12:07:48 EDT
Description of problem: In a menu dialog, if the user types a numbered hot key 
that is one greater than the number of items in the menu, dialog will segfault, 
leaving the terminal settings in a bad state.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.9a-5

How reproducible: very

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dialog --menu foo 0 0 0 bar baz
2. type the number '2'
Actual results: dialog segfauls

Expected results: nothing should happen.  Two is not a valid menu item.  The 
behavior should be the same as when the number '3' is typed.
