$ emacs -nw /usr/share/texmf/doc/latex/sidecap/sc2demo.tex
and hitting 'M-x' to get to a command minibuffer results in

as command line arguments immediately ended up with
"Fatal error (11).Segmentation fault". I guess that I should try rawhide
This was fixed by the emacs-20.7-15 package. See bug 17893.
