I guess it is similar to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=498557 . It seems like argc is 0 and argv is NULL and this causes segmentaion fault of the /bin/true binary. Although this should not happen in common usage, maybe this situation should be handled somehow by gnulib's progname.c and/or by coreutils binaries generally in main(), to make them more safe to use. Jim, what do you think?
