Description of problem:
There's output in an email generated by logwatch that crashes pine when i read
it. Pine dies with the following error:
Problem detected: "Received abort signal".
The problem seems to lie in the following line(s):
1 5651 euro.com
although not reading them in the context of the whole email doesn't seem to
I'm using pine-4.44-1.72.0.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. read this particular email
2. pine crashes
Actual Results: Problem detected: "Received abort signal".
Expected Results: i should have been able to continue reading email :-)
since the email is from my logwatch script, and since it contains mail records,
i'd prefer not to attach it to this bug. is there a particular person i can
email it to instead? (i'm paranoid about having a day's worth of mail logs +
tripwire results + etc anywhere that google can get them).
Can you produce an email message which also causes pine to die without
having sensitive material in it? I'm going to need a valid test case,
which can be attached to the bug report, since many people may need
to view it, and the issue may not be resolved immediately. We need
to keep everything pertaining to a bug in one place.
I also recommend reporting this problem directly to the PINE team, to
ensure it is fixed in the next release of PINE.
Without a bug test case with which to reproduce this problem, and
then run pine in a debugger to determine where it is failing, there
is nothing I can do to troubleshoot it.
Closing bug WONTFIX, as it isn't possible to fix an unreproduceable
bug without data. Please feel free to reopen once data is obtained
that can be attached to the bug report.
