Description of problem:
Less segfaults or fails an assertion if used to view some files. I'm including
two sample files, which are just parts of a 'vim' session.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. less togo.assert
2. less togo.segfault
Actual Results: % less togo.assert
less: multi.c:1232: buffering_multi: Assertion `mp->intindex == 0' failed.
% less togo.segfault
Expected Results: It should have shown the file to the best of its ability, and
caught all errors.
setenv LESS diErX
setenv LESSOPEN |/usr/bin/lesspipe.sh %s

Two testcases that cause 'less' to croak
These two files will cause less to segfault and fail an assertion
Seems to work fine with 378-11
