Description jprosa 1999-06-01 04:55:02 UTC
executing: /usr/bin/readmsg \*
causes a seg fault

It segs in: readmsg.c at line 341

if(get_mssg_info(&minfo, fstate.sel_list[i] != 0)

The problem seems to be with fstate.sel_list being an
(int *) and w/ bad bounds checking.

See ya.

I've just packaged elm2.5.0-1 (the official release). If you
get a chance, could you see if seg-fault persists there.

Send mail to <> and I'll send you the rpms.

Fixed in elm-2.5.0-2. Thanks for the analysis and patch!
