This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2001-10-24 on sebold

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Displaying a certain GIF in Emacs 21.1 causes it to SIGSEGV.  I
discovered this when it was mailed to me by somebody and I tried to view
it in Gnus.  I am running Debian unstable, up-to-date as of this

The following are the versions of GIF libraries that I have on this
system, according to Debian's package management.  I compiled this
binary of Emacs myself with no patches.

ii  giflib3g       3.0-6          shared library for GIF images (runtime lib)
ii  libungif4-dev  4.1-9          shared library for GIF images (development f
ii  libungif4g     4.1-9          shared library for GIF images (runtime lib)

Here's the backtrace from GDB:

I have the GIF itself uploaded to my homepage if you are interested in
trying it on your own.


If you want more information I would be happy to supply it.  Sorry I
know nothing about GDB or I would try to supply more now.
