Comment 3 Petr Pisar 2010-07-22 07:31:34 EDT
/* Free storage associated with linevector.  */
static void
linevector_free (vec)
    struct linevector *vec;
    unsigned int ln;

    if (vec->vector != NULL)
        for (ln = 0; ln < vec->nlines; ++ln)
→           if (vec->vector[ln] && --vec->vector[ln]->refcount == 0)
                free (vec->vector[ln]);

        free (vec->vector);

It segfaults on derefencing vec->vector[ln]->refcount, while vec->vector[ln] != NULL but it's still invalid pointer.
Comment 4 Petr Pisar 2010-07-23 07:58:39 EDT
Forwarding to upstream (see URL) as without data to reproduce it requires code review by somebody how knows the code very well.

Comment 6 Petr Pisar 2010-10-21 11:26:30 EDT
I believe this is instance of bug #645386 (corrupted CVS repository crashes CVS client) and it will be fixed in cvs-1.11.23-10.fc13.
