I have seen this bug also. 

I resolved it by compiling with the following options: 

This was added to the CCFLAGS= line of the Makefile.

I installed the source rpm for tcsh.
Then installed each patch (for version 6.10)
then ran the configure script.
Then edited the Makefile to add the above definitions.

make install

cd /bin
rm tcsh
ln -s /usr/local/bin/tcsh tcsh

Note: The src rpm configure file has the make install place the tcsh executable
into /usr/local/bin.

Hope you find this useful. And we get an updated rpm soon.

This appears fixed on RedHat 8.0 (but not 7.3). Close?
