The Endpoint() postgis function crashes the server

Description of problem:
The Endpoint() function crashes the server
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Execute the following query on a database that has postgis enabled. (The
database may be otherwise empty):
server closed the connection unexpectedly
This probably means the server terminated abnormally
before or while processing the request.
This is apparently a known postgis bug, where memory is freed twice. A patch can
be found here:
I rebuilt postgis using the patch, and it now works as expected.
Upstream is about to release 1.3.2, I want to hold this bug until 1.3.2 is
released to avoid frequent updates.
1.3.2 was released, and I pushed it for build. Since that patch is now a part of
1.3.2 version, the bug is resolved (I also confirmed on my F-7 installation).
The update will appear in Fedora repos in a few days.
postgis-1.3.2-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
