Description Yaron Minsky 2004-02-28 18:14:42 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
Less segfaults on some inputs.  In particular, there's a file I have
that came from my palm that causes less (and interesting, gpilotd) to
segfault.  This only occurs with "less -r" with the file in question,
which I will attach to this bug.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. type "less -r lessbug"
2. Await segfault.

less-382 from Fedora Core 2 Test 1 doesn't segfault with your test 
I've build a new package for Fedora Core 1, please test it when it 
shows up in 
and report any problems. 
Note: This new version removes support for non-UTF8 japanese/korean
