Bug#295051: `apt-get update' segfaults while reading package lists (reproducable)

Package: apt
Version: 0.5.4 (debian stable)

With the follow sources.list apt-get update segfaults at 66%, sometimes 67%,
while "Reading Package Lists":

deepthought:/# cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US stable/non-US main contrib
deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main
deb http://www.backports.org/debian stable mc
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free
deb http://packages.dotdeb.org ./

This only happens when the "deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian testing
main contrib non-free" line is in there, so I assume that line is wrong
somehow or collides with another line.

I found out that this line with less rules in sources.list causes this

Reading Package Lists... Error!
E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room
E: Error occured while processing postman (NewPackage)
E: Problem with MergeList
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

But when I add all the other lines (and only when all sources.list lines I
showed earlier are in there), the segfault occurs.

Good luck,

Ron Korving
