From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-12 i686)

Description of problem:
rxvt and xterm shares a feature which let you change font size on the fly,
using Shift-KP_Substract and Shift-KP_Add to switch from font to font. The
fonts can be specified with X ressources *font1 , font2, fontn. Up to six
fonts can be specified, plus the standard font. When using the Shift+KP_Add
or Shift+KP_Substract rxvt dump a core.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open rxvt
2. Press Shift+KP_Add or Shift+KP_Substract

Actual Results:  rxvt crashed

Expected Results:  rxvt's font changing, as xterm does

Additional info:

I've tried creating a new user to be sure that my .Xdefaults was not
faulty. I've seen the same problem.
