Triggered by the mail of Jude, do you confirm that installing readline
prevents this bug from happening? Than indeed adding that as a
dependency would solve your issue.

No it doesn't. Just because readline is installed, it doesn't mean that everything you run wil use it. Apart from my `cat` example which crashes reliably even with readline6 installed, there are commands which don't use readline (e.g. at) where I believe it will occur. right now I'm not in a position to test it.

IMHO, tryign to work around the bug isn't the right approach. A bug that will crash the entire system hard needs to be treated as a bug that needs to be fixed.
