I can not reproduce this.

Comment 2 Kasper Dupont 2004-03-05 09:13:41 UTC
I managed to get a core dump from a segfaulting newaliases command.

https://www.daimi.au.dk/~kasperd/newaliases/core

The core dump was produced by copying /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail to
/root/bin/newaliases, removing suid bit from the copy, and finaly
executing the command "while /root/bin/newaliases ; do true ; done".
