Bug#55407: vi (?) segfaults

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2.4

I suspect this problem is really for elvis-tiny 1.4-7, which dpkg showed as
installed, but I'm not 100% sure.  Please reassign as appropriate.  If I vi
sources.list and execute the command
I get a segmentation fault.  Using % in place of 1,44 works alright.

After the seg fault, the file is locked, and can't be edited further.  I
had to reboot the system (I know there's a better way; fee free to
enlighten me) to access the file.  (Well, I also did a mv sources.list
s.l.bak; cp s.l.bak sources.list; rm s.l.bak.  But there's a better way
than that too, right?)

But to return the original subject: the file doesn't have 44 lines.  But a
segfault seems like a poor reaction to that problem...
