Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-05-11 02:42:41 UTC
Description of problem:

Type 'info date' and hit DEL key twice. On the second hit consistently:
"Moving to `Prev's last menu item.Segmentation fault"

This happens both on x86_64 and i386.  Neither old info-4.1-1 nor
info-4.8-4 from rawhide seems to be afflicted by this disease.

Interestingly enough using 'p' key instead of DEL does not have this
effect.  Type 'info date', 'u', and now after a longer series of 'p'
one gets to "No `Prev' pointer for this node" message and no crash.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Same as bug #147000.  Maybe this needs a Fedora update.

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2005-05-12 11:10:49 UTC

Does this fix the problem for you?

> Does this fix the problem for you?

Yes, indeed, it does.  I tried other key sequences, some of them rather long,
and so far I did not find anything which would cause segfault.  Not surprising 
as this is not 4.7 anymore.  Not that I am attached to a specific version. :-)

Comment 4 Miloslav Trmač 2006-01-15 12:50:49 UTC
Thanks for confirmation, texinfo-4.8-2.2 was released for FC3 in October 2005.
