Description of problem:

Type "rlwrap passwd" and press any key:

Changing password for user xxx.
Enter login(LDAP) password:
rlwrap: Oops, segfault -  this should not have happened!
If you need a core dump, re-configure with --enable-debug and rebuild
Resetting terminal and cleaning up...

This occurs for any program preventing character echo for password entry (e.g. tools that could really use readline like sqlplus).

Comment 1 Lans Carstensen 2009-06-17 18:18:33 EDT
Simply rebuilding from the EPEL source RPM addresses the SEGV on my RHEL 5.3 systems.  There is no newer "testing" version.  Can we get this EPEL rpm rebuilt?
Comment 2 Mark Chappell 2010-09-24 11:58:17 EDT
Looks like rlwrap was updated and rebuilt.

rlwrap.x86_64        0.37-1.el5      epel

Lans are you able to confirm that this bug has been fixed?
