Now a posting to debian-devel (Message-ID: <IY8pXD.A.E-E.iAfV8@murphy>)
is triggering this bug.  Can anyone else reproduce this?  Install mutt-utf8,
set LANG=en_US.UTF-8 (and generate it--I wish locale-gen would always
generate UTF-8 locales), make your terminal wide (around 140-150 columns)
and load debian-devel.  It segfaults for me merely by displaying it in the

I'm not sure if this is exploitable; I did report it as important but it
was downgraded to normal.  It's definitely smashing the stack, though
any exploit might be dependent on the terminal width or need to two-way
through another encoding and/or be valid UTF-8, so I'm not terribly

This might be yet another occurance of slang1-utf8 weirdness.
