I noticed that if you turn the -q option on, it doesn't segfault any more.
So it may be some bug in the screen output code - an overflowing buffer?
I'm copying bug 104325 with this.
I had some other problems with it not following linkds the way I thought
it should be, altho I have little experience with it. So I downgraded from
1.6-2 to 1.5.3-3 (stable) and it behaves very well for me.
I noticed in the bug list there is a new upstream version 1.7 also, if you'd
rather go that direction.
