I can confirm this bug.  A quick strace reveals a slew of brk() kernel calls
between an occasional mmap2() call.

I don't have aspell-debuginfo installed but to map out what standard functions
are being called during the infinite allocation loop:

Comment 3 Joe Orton 2003-05-23 13:10:16 UTC
The HTML/SGML parser seems to actually work pretty well in aspell-0.50.3-6 in
Raw Hide.

Comment 5 Eido Inoue 2003-05-23 16:37:16 UTC
fixed in rawhide's 0.50
