Description of problem:
Sometimes less 415 aborts. I could not gain any useful
information from gdb..

100% on a certain case
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget -N http://www.httrack.com/httrack-3.42.tar.gz

3. cd httrack-3.42.1/

It seems, that this bug is related to UTF-8 coding in a file. It should be fixed
in the rawhide now.
