Segmentation fault (core dumped) ooops

Well, as the subject reads, i'm receiving this beautiful message when I try and receive my email for admin when I log into my RH box. (basically, log into my box as admin, and type mail at the shell)

It's just dandy: Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Anyone have any idea on what can be causing this? It just started to happen. I've rebooted my machine with no luck.

Anyone have some suggestions?

There is no obvious reason for a prog to segfault - usually poor design is the most common. The only things that can be done are
1. Examine core file created during seg fault (if ulimit is set to anything other than 0) with strings
strings /path/to/core
2. Run debugger on core file
gdb --core=/path/to/core
3. Send core file to the vendor for them to fiddle with it.
