Description jeroen 2002-07-31 07:05:34 EDT
After i installed mc from limbo beta 2 cd3 and tried to edit a config file, mc
segfaulted. Subsequent attempts after that caused mc to hang. Viewing a file
(F3) works fine, it's only editing that causes it to hang.

Unfortunately, i have no backtrace of the first segfault.

After i did a "killall mc", bash memory usage skyrocketed to >800megs (seen in
top). My system became extremely slow/non-responsive until i closed the terminal
