Description of problem:
I talked to the maintainer of texinfo and he said he believes this bug
to be fixed in texinfo 4.8 which was released a few weeks ago.  So
hopefully we can get an RPM of that in the repository.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type "info info"
2. Press ] until you're at node 1.6
3. Press [ to go to the previous node

Actual Results:  Seg fault

Expected Results:  Back to the previous node

Comment 1 Sitsofe Wheeler 2005-02-05 19:58:07 EST
After installing texinfo-debuginfo valgrind had this to say:
==15711== Conditional jump or move depends on uninitialised value(s)

==15711==    by 0x805C2A6: ??? (session.c:4646)

(this was for texinfo-4.7-5)
I didn't dig any further because as Jeff mentioned it sounds like there are
fixes to session.c in later texinfo packages (see
http://savannah.gnu.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs/texinfo/texinfo/ChangeLog?rev=HEAD )
