tcsh crashes when loading history file
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:25 EST
Description of problem:
I was unable to login to my account. Investigation revealed ~/.history file to
be blamed as moving it out of the way to another location let me to use my
account. I saved a file (attached) and tried to load it with:
$ history -M history
and it coredumped (also attached)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always with provided history file.
What may be important here is that:
1. I use pl_PL.utf8 locale
2. history seems to keep a lot of crap from Midnight Commander

core dump from "history -M history" command
Created attachment 125350 [details]
offending history file
Please test tcsh-6.14-1.fc4.2 from the updates-testing repository.
Seems to be OK.
tcsh-6.14-6.fc5.1 has been pushed for FC5, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
Thanks for your report and testing.
