Description of problem:
When you are connecting to an FTP server, if you use a password that starts with
a number, it causes gFTP to exit abnormally (crash).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run gFTP and login with the apporpiate information to your server.
2. As your password, enter a password that starts with a number.
Actual Results: The program exits with the error:
/usr/bin/gftp: line 9: 2989 Segmentation fault /usr/bin/gftp-text
Expected Results: gFTP should connect to the server appropiately.
Although unchecked, this bug may cause the password to be stored in the memory
and may lead to memory leaks if the information that was stored during the crash
is not cleared.
We should confirm still present in latest rawhide gftp.
Can't reproduce with gftp-2.0.14-2
