"emacs -nw" seg faults on exit
> rpm -qf /usr/bin/emacs

// edit file and then exit (c-x c-c)
// gives the result
Fatal error (11).Segmentation fault (core dumped)
I had an exact duplicate of this error (infact, emacs --version dies
similairly) - Installing emacs 20.4.1 (from ftp.emacs.org) and
libtermcap-2.0.8-15.i386.rpm appears to, erm, 'fix', the problem.
I'm not too sure that libtermcap is necessary or related though.
This is fixed in 6.1 and 6.2.
