I don't know if this is a compiler bug or is a sign of bug in findutils.
So you are who'll find out that...

I think it is probably a compiler bug.  That is not to say that there
could not ever be a bug in findutils, but that's what I think at the

But GCC-2.95.3 is quite old, you should consider using a newer version
of the compiler.

The source code file which causes GCC to suffer from the SIGSEGV is
taken from the gnulib software, which is used in plenty of places and
so is well tested.   That is one of the reasons why I don't think that
a bug in regex.c is causing this.  However, because the source code
file is taken from gnulib, I would prefer not to change it, either.

Ciuld you please try compileing the software wioth a newer release of
GCC and verifying that the problem does not occur with that?

findutils I use everyday so thank you for the great work :)

You're very welcome.  Thanks for reporting the problem, I hope it is
possible to solve it.

Many thanks,
