Debian Lenny: tcsh segmentation fault. when .history contains 8-bit char (?)


Hya.

Debian lenny: tcsh crashes when .history file contains non ascii (EUC or something).
Code:
>tcsh --version
tcsh 6.14.00 (Astron) 2005-03-25 (i486-intel-linux) options wide,nls,dl,al,kan,rh,nd,color,filec
so I think tcsh itself is 8-bit clean.

When .history file does not contain whatever (to be determined), shell goes happy.

I am not sure if this is same issue.

I will update.

Happy Penguins!

Hya,

Similar error still happens on 64bit Debian squeeze.
Code:
>tcsh --version>tcsh --version
tcsh 6.14.00 (Astron) 2005-03-25 (x86_64-unknown-linux) options wide,nls,dl,al,kan,rh,nd,color,filec
tcsh segfaults. Removing .history resolves situation.

One more clue.
My system looks like follows.

ssh -X -Y to headless 64bit squeeze. Then xterm and many jobs....

It is possible to ssh. (so tcsh is working) Then next xterm dies (reproducible) due to non-functional tcsh. If I clear .history, everything goes well.

HOWEVER, if I ssh from some other terminal, everything goes well. (reproducible)

.history contains some unusual junk (due to cut paste error.)

Hope this sheds some light.

Happy Penguins!

I am not sure if this is same nature.
