    -  sprintf (&input_line[input_line_end], "%s[%s]\n",
    -           echo_area_is_active ? " ": "", text);
    +  snprintf (&input_line[input_line_end], EA_MAX_INPUT + 1 - input_line_end,
    +                 "%s[%s]\n", echo_area_is_active ? " ": "", text);

I see the problem, but is there a way to reproduce the problem, or was
it found by pure inspection?  If I just type a ton of input, it doesn't

    The bug was pointed out on bugtraq by somebody else. 

I searched for echo-area.c at
http://www.securityfocus.com/archive/1, but didn't find the original
report.  Help?

Thanks much for sending.
