Similar error still happens on 64bit Debian squeeze.
>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.
I am not sure if this
is same nature.
