Hi Folks--

I'm using debian's mailutils version 0.6.94-1, and i found the
following misbehavior.  It's currently filed as debian bug 379156 [0],
if you care to followup there.

i can reliably make GNU mailutils segfault when reading mail from a
simple mbox.  It probably segfaults in many more circumstances, but
this is the simplest way i've found to do it:

Make an mbox with a single message in it, and view it with

At the first prompt, type "cd x" and hit tab.  you will get a
segmentation fault:

[0 address@hidden tmp.UoUsZ25790]$ cat >example <<EOF

"/tmp/tmp.UoUsZ25790/example": 1 message 1 new
>N   1 Daniel Kahn Gillmo Fri Jul 21 09:35   7/214   example simple mbox
& cd xSegmentation fault
[139 address@hidden tmp.UoUsZ25790]$ 

I have not had a chance to debug this further yet, but will happily
provide more information if it would help resolve the problem.
