Description lfwelty 1998-12-08 18:41:44 UTC
Problem - autoexpanding filenames with a .<filename> format
in
          a directory stack causes tcsh & xterm core dump
(xterm
          dies) -- fvwm2
Under RH5.2 - running tcsh with autoexpand.

ex.
ls on your .tcshrc file from another directory stack.
/home/lfwelty> pushd /etc
/etc ~
/etc> ls =1/.tcsh<hit tab to autoexpand causes core dump>

my .tcshrc file:
if ($?tcsh) then

   bindkey -v           # use vi key bindings on the
                        # command line

   set autoexpand       # expand substitutions ie '!$'
   set autolist         # list possible completions
   set rmstar           # Prompt user before execution of
'rm *'
   set ignore_symlinks  #upon doin cd .., this will put you
where you
                        #were before doing a cd via symbolic
links.
   set listjobs=long    #lists all jobs, when suspending, in
long format

endif

This is very reproducable -- happens every time.

I'm new to RH -- I've only run slackware before; so it could
be
my inexperience with the system, but this worked on
slackware 96
running kernel 2.0.0

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks,

Frank.

Replicated the .tcshrc of the user, but was unable to replicate
process crashes.

tcsh produces Segmentation fault after doing, e.g.:
cd /etc ; pushd / ; ls =1/ho<tab-key>
It shows the file list and then dies.
I have tcsh-6.07.09-1.i386.rpm installed in Red Hat 5.2.
For testing, I had no .tcshrc, .cshrc, nor .login.
