Description Pytela, Zdenek 2000-08-25 10:52:44 EDT
Editor joe from joe-2.8-24 cannot be executed, it looks like strcpy bug.
If no ~/.joerc is presented, the editor works.
If edited file exists, joe starts and freezes.
This was observed on a fresh installation with Czech locales and .joerc.
$ joe non-existing-file

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-27 12:02:00 EDT
Can't reproduce with the one in Rawhide... and I know we have some fixes for 
memory issues there.
