When scanning directories, tripwire segfaults on files with
"international" characters. For instance,
(where the 'd' is '\344') cause this problem.
Actually, these 5 files were the only ones on my
system which caused a problem...
try out the new tripwire to see if the problem still exists. It is
located at ftp://rawhide.redhat.com/rawhide/powertools . Please let me
know if you still experience problems with the newer version.
