Description of problem:
starting mutt with the maildir and muttrc provided, it crashes
with a segfault. This happens during sorting by thread.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
tar zxvfp mutt-bug.tgz
2. Start mutt with
mutt -f Maildir -F mymuttrc
Actual Results: Sorting mailbox...Segmentation fault
and the gnome terminal's foreground turns light blue.
Expected Results: see the two messages in the maildir. And I do see them when
I do not load the rc file (which contains the single line
set sort=threads # primary sorting method
strace output of
strace -o strace.out mutt -f Maildir -F mymuttrc
is included in the tarball.
If I start mutt from a script, then not only the terminal turns blue, but
echoing of my typing gets turned off too. Try running the script
included in the tarball.
I sometimes saw mutt crash when subject line was long/weird, but
I have not had time to investigate at the time.
The problem does not occur when I compile from sources with no arguments to
./configure. But as soon as I specify --with-slang, then I see the problem
again. It does not matter if I use the 1.4.1 or 1.5.4 sources.
What happens if you use the rawhide slang packages (cf: bug 97216)?
What locale are you running in, if any?
Indeed, installing the slang packages from rawhide, and recompiling
mutt from sources (both 1.4 or 1.5.4) fixes the problem.
LC_TYPE is not set for me, and I have
Hope mutt/slang in RH beta will be OK. Please test with
Yeah, that test works fine for me with current code, that's why I immediately
thought of the slang problem.
