Description Chris Negus 2000-08-21 19:29:44 UTC
When I exit the mail command after having looked at a mail message, I get
this message:

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

The mail messages that were read remain in the mail box and are not stored
in the $HOME/mbox. I assume the problem comes when it tries to write to the
mbox. It exits without a problem when I don't look at any messages.
