Bug in joe, or libc6?


just stumbled on the following strange effect in joe:

joe segfaults after editing a file, dumping core in the process.
'gdb /usr/bin/joe' suggests that the segfault happens while in 
libc code:

Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
find_solib: Can't read pathname for load map: Input/output error

#0  0xc0088a60 in ?? () from /lib/libc.so.6

(gdb) bt
#0  0xc0088a60 in ?? () from /lib/libc.so.6
#1  0x0 in ?? ()

Command used:

joe /project/debian/xfree86-3.3.1/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree68/fbdev/fbdev.c

or any other command with a looong path name (debian/xfree86-3.3.1/... is
ok, project/debian/xfree86-3.3.1/... coredumps).
Just open the file, and exit again (^C or ^KX, no difference).


# dpkg -l joe libc6
| Status=Not/Installed/Config-files/Unpacked/Failed-config/Half-installed
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name            Version        Description
ii  joe             2.8-8          Joe's Own Editor - A Free ASCII-Text Screen
ii  libc6           2.0.5c-0.1     The GNU C library version 2 (run-time files)

That's not the most recent stuff, can anyone reproduce this behavior with a recent
joe and libc6 ??
