Description of problem:
Sending message from mutt results in segmentation fault when mbox (incoming mail
folder) and record (sent mail folder) are set to the same value. Appropriate
lines from the muttrc:
Segmentation happens when I send the message to a very long address, such as,
for example, used to confirm subscription to the mailing list. I have seen this
problem with securityfocus.com and yahoogroups.com mailing lists.
Short destination addresses do not cause any problems. Also, if record is set
to a different folder from mbox, then no problem appears as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install mutt.
2. Add these two lines to the ~/.mutt/muttrc file:
3. Run mutt.
4. Change to ~/Mail/in-inbox mail foder.
5. Send message to a very long address (about 100-150 characters).
Actual Results: The message is sent and a copy does appear in ~/Mail/in-inbox,
but mutt crashes with "Segmentation fault" message.
Expected Results: No "Segmentation fault" necessary.
I've tested this with the FC3 mutt, and I can't reproduce the problem.
I wonder if this is a slang issue that's fixed with the switch to
ncurses. Please reopen if this persists on current Fedora Core or RHEL
