GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit)
started with

    /usr/local/bin/emacs -q --no-site-file --eval '(blink-cursor-mode 0)'

When both /var/mail/bob and ~/RMAIL are zero length files, the command
   M-x rmail

causes Emacs to abort.  The same occurs when either /var/mail/bob or
~/RMAIL have content.

However, when /var/mail/bob is a zero length file, when a full ~/RMAIL is first found with `M-x find-file-literally' and when rmail is run with a prefix command, `C-u M-x rmail'
  then Emacs does not abort and I can read my RMAIL.

Here is the GDB backtrace from the first situation, starting Emacs with both /var/mail/bob and ~/RMAIL as zero length files.
The command was  `M-x rmail':

I will take a look at this problem.
