emacs-21.1 on linux RH7.1 console

A friend with a vanilla RH7.1 box reports that running 
  emacs -q -no-site-file
in a text console crashes with "Fatal error (6)" when font lock is
turned on and TERM is (correctly) set to "linux".

Also TERM=ansi causes it to crash, although xterm (!) and vt100 work,
the latter without colour.

This is part of the backtrace:

  #0  0x402cbdd1 in __kill () from /lib/libc.so.6
  #1  0x80cf6bc in fatal_error_signal (sig=6) at emacs.c:354
  #2  <signal handler called>
  #3  0x402cbdd1 in __kill () from /lib/libc.so.6
  #4  0x80cf6da in abort () at emacs.c:387
  #5  0x815eedd in tparam1 (string=0x8378c5b "\e[3%p1%dm", 
                            len=0, up=0x0, left=0x0, 
      at tparam.c:298
  #6  0x815eb3d in tparam (string=0x8378c5b "\e[3%p1%dm", 
                           outstring=0x0, len=0, arg0=1, 
                           arg1=9, arg2=-1073751696, arg3=-1073751720)

It looks to me like emacs has run into an unexpected character in the
termcap entry "\e[3%p1%dm" and aborted in the default branch of the
switch in tparam1(). However I don't know if the error is in the entry
itself or emacs' expections of it.
