Description P Fudd 2003-07-10 16:29:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

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):

How reproducible:

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
Segmentation fault

Expected Results:  It should have shown the file to the best of its ability, and
caught all errors.

Additional info:

Environment variables:
setenv LESS diErX
setenv LESSOPEN |/usr/bin/lesspipe.sh %s

Created attachment 92866 [details]
Two testcases that cause 'less' to croak

These two files will cause less to segfault and fail an assertion
