Emacs 21.1.1: Crash in combination with DOS RCS

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 (i386-msvc-nt4.0.1381)
 of 2001-10-22 on buffy
configured using `configure --with-msvc (12.00)'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: DEU
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

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

We use a DOS version of RCS on our Windows NT systems (it reports
"RCS version 5.7" when called with rcs -V). When I try to open a file
under RCS control, Emacs (pre-compiled binaries) crashes, and NT
issues a message which is equivalent to (translated from German):
'Statement in "0x01003960" points to memory in "0x0e59fdce". The
operation "read" could not be performed in the memory. Click OK
to stop the application.'

Sorry I don't have an English NT at hand.

When I configure cv-handled-backends so that it does not contain RCS,
no crash occurs, but obviously, RCS support is gone then.

Note that Emacs Windows 20.7.1 does not crash.
