Description Michael Schwendt 2002-07-11 21:07:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020625

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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.
