Description hv 2000-04-25 16:11:45 UTC
Just found a month-old core dump for nxterm in my home directory. System
had then been up for about 50 days (now 85); I have no idea what caused it.
Redhat 6.1 system with XFree86-, here's uname -a:
  Linux crypt.compulink.co.uk 2.2.5-16 #1 Sun May 30 23:00:18 BST 1999 i686

gdb gives this stacktrace:
Core was generated by `/usr/bin/X11/nxterm'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

    rtld_fini=0x4000a350 <_dl_fini>, stack_end=0xbffffd5c)

I'll keep the core file around for another month or so in case inquiring
minds want to know anything.

Should be fixed in the current release.  This bug should have been closed
long ago.. slipped threw the cracks I guess.  Please upgrade to the latest
