Description Michal Jaegermann 2001-06-24 16:31:12 EDT
With 'magicfilter' from printconf-0.2.12-1 the following happens on x86:

# /usr/bin/magicfilter-t 
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
# /usr/bin/magicfilter-t --help
usage: magicfilter printer-driver [options]
 -a   foo            Segmentation fault (core dumped)

# gdb /usr/bin/magicfilter-t core

On Alpha a picture is slightly different:

# rpm -q printconf
# /usr/bin/magicfilter-t
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
# /usr/bin/magicfilter-t --help
usage: magicfilter printer-driver [options]

Segmentation fault occures in the same getline() call.
