Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2002-07-24 06:25:01 UTC
There seems to be something funky happening anytime a non
supported set of arguments is giving. 

up2date --safasdfadfasdf

will segfault as well. Havent dug very deep into the cause
yet, since it doesnt seem to break anything in normal
useage, and is probabaly down in python-popt, which
is scheduled for removal.

on the radar, but a low priority at the moment...

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2002-08-06 08:20:08 UTC
Apparently, this has been fixed (2.9.33-7.x.9). Tested with Limbo beta2 and
first huge bunch of upgrades applied.
