Package: efax
Version: 1:0.9a-13
Severity: normal

If I call 'fax send <number> <file>' efax quits with
signal 11.

This can be fixed by changing line 890 of /usr/bin/fax from

                $NICE $EFAX -v "$VERB" -v "$VERBLOG" \


                $NICE $EFAX  \ 

The problem exists now for several versions of efax. The
last working version was a self compiled version 0.9.x.
I have not tried a self compiled version recently.
