Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 181611
editing file with character \x80 crashes
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:14:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Pressing enter just after an \x80 character in the editor causes Segmentation
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version : 4.6.1a
Release : 4.FC4
Create a sample file with character \x80,
open it in the editor and press enter after the \Ã80 character.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. perl -e 'print "text = \"\x80\";\n";' > sample
2. In mc press F4 on the sample file to edit.
3. Position to the second quotation mark and press enter.
The edited line should be broken into two lines.
The \x80 should be the last character of the original line
and with the second quotation mark a new line should be started.
Probably the problem is related to some UTF patch applied by Fedora developers
(see the external bug reference link).

I successfully reproduced it. This seems to be fixed by the latest rawhide mc,
so I'll release updates soon.
I'll close this after the update is released. Thanks.
From User-Agent: XML-RPC
mc-4.6.1a-5.fc4 has been pushed for FC4, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
