Description of problem:
Emacs aborts when moving a vertical
split bar all the way to the right.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GNU Emacs 21.2.1
Steps to Reproduce:
1) %> Emacs. :)
2) C-x C-f ~/path/to/a/file
3) C-x 3
4) Move the vertical split bar all the way to the right.
[Raptor@Sirca srcs]$ emacs
Fatal error (6).Aborted
The, in the above way, horizontally-enlarged, left-splitted
window should look like the 'lisp-evaluation' (initial) window,
when it has been throught the above process. (The
'lisp-evaluation' window, strangely, does not present a
problematic behaviour when passed through the above operations)
The 'lisp-evaluation' window, strangely, does not present
a problematic behaviour throughout the bug-reproducing operations.
This still happens with Emacs 21.3.
Harder to reproduce (but still existing) in 126.96.36.199.
There seem to be several problems with splitting. For
example, having multiple vertical split bars and moving
quiclky one of them up-down sometimes causes at least
one of the bars to become 'jammed' (new bug?).
This is fixed in cvs emacs as far I can tell.
