Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5476
emacs dumps core due to buffer overflow in Xlib
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
If emacs loses its connection to the X server, either by
shutting down the server or giving the emacs window a
"XKillClient", it will dump core. This occurs because emacs
tries to clean up, but ends up overflowing the communication
buffer to the X server. I will submit a sample patch.
patch added for next release.
