Description of problem:
Moving through long lines of text that don't fit into the window size causes a
segmentation fault upon program exit.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
In virtual console (or standard sized xterm):
1. jed /etc/screenrc
2. move cursor to line 53, first column
3. press cursor left to move it to end of line 52
4. press CTRL+X, CTRL+C to exit (or use menu)
Actual Results: Segmentation fault
Expected Results: No segfault.
As an alternative test-case, it is enough to scroll horizontally through
overlong lines. Any file with sufficiently long lines serves as a test-case.
Fixed with slang-1.4.5-11; the bug was actually there.
Fix confirmed with slang-1.4.5-11.
