Description Bryce 2007-12-11 14:54:38 EST
buffer overflow and termination of program. (was doing something with the zoom
aspect at the time when it crashed out)

This probably should be passed by the libc folk for a gander

Looks like a xfig problem and not a libc problem to me. I'll ask on devel howto
ger some usefull info out of the attached dump.

Any chance you can find a way to reproduce this?
Comment 3 Bryce 2007-12-11 19:01:25 EST
Ah, there we go
open xfig
text tool,.. (click anywhere) add text  'DOOM' (or whatever 8) )
<alt-z> left-click (zoom WAY up on the text) (it may even bail here)
drop down to the Zoom factor box (bottom left)
right-click <BOOM>

Comment 4 Hans de Goede 2007-12-12 16:13:16 EST
xfig-3.2.5-6.fc8, which fixes this, should become available in updates
