Description of problem:
environment-modules releases less than v3.2.10 are buggy.
There is a complicated issue rising up in relation to a Tcl buffer, which only pops up with many or long modules (to fill up the caching buffer).
Patch has been available for a year already and it is part of v3.2.10 release (Dec. 2012). At some point this has to become an .rpm package for RHEL (Fedora has it already for some time!)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
As described in:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. module load <a module with many dependencies>
2. module list (empty list)
(silent core dump occurs)
see the exact items loaded!
environment-modules-3.2.10-1.el5 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 5.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora EPEL 5 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=epel-testing environment-modules-3.2.10-1.el5'
as soon as you are able to.

sorry but I have tried several times already to fill the form "Sign up for a Fedora account" and the captcha claims to be always wrong. I suspect the captcha is plainly broken.
If anybody reads this, please increase the karma here on my behalf:
environment-modules-3.2.10-1.el5 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 5 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
