texi2dvi 1.10 (4.3) segfault

texi2dvi (GNU Texinfo 4.3) 1.10
texindex (GNU texinfo) 4.3

The bug does not occur with Texinfo 4.2

platform: alpha-unknown-linux-gnu (RedHat 7.1 on UP1500)

input files: 



wget http://www.complang.tuwien.ac.at/anton/tmp/bug-texinfo-4.3.tar.gz
tar xfz bug-texinfo-4.3.tar.gz
cd bug-texinfo-4.3/
texi2dvi -e gforth.texi

This produces:

/usr/local/bin/texi2dvi: line 654:  5855 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) 
$texindex $index_files 2>&5 1>&2
/usr/local/bin/texi2dvi: texindex exited with bad status, quitting.

The problem vanishes if I remove the file "gforth.ds" from the
directory.  Apparently texindex thinks that it is an index file and
becomes confused (actually gforth.ds is a source file from which
gforth.texi is generated).

Problem 2: I could not step back from 4.3 to 4.2 by patching with the
diff.  Somehow the whole automake etc. process became confused (recent
versions of autoconf and automake) and did not result in anything that
I could compile.  Fortunately I had a texinfo-4.2.tar.gz lying around
