100% of CPU.
This bug was not in FC5.
Bug still exists in ed-0.6, I've reported it upstream.
Fix looks easy as there's a missing check to exit a do-while loop, but I'll
wait for confirmation before I push new packages.
fixed in ed-0.7-1.fc7 and ed-0.7-1.fc8
ed-0.7-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
