Comment 1 Joe Orton 2003-05-12 05:05:20 EDT
Even segfaults with:

  env -i links -no-home -dump http://localhost/

The problem is the call

  RAND_egd(RAND_file_name(f_randfile, sizeof(f_randfile)))

which segfaults since RAND_file_name returns NULL if $HOME is not set.  RAND_egd
is not necessary for a Linux system anyway - I'm testing a patch to remove this
section of code.
