(Debian Bug 344248): R segfaults when pressing Delete (PR#8420)

Resend after type in mailheader.  I have the bug on my system with
yesterday's R 2.2.1. A library mismatch is still a likely cause.

That said, I just tried this where I seemed to have no ~/.RData file.
Pressing <Deletet><Return> leads to a SegFault.

I will pass this on R Core.

Thanks for the bug report.

R-bugs e-mail {was ... (Debian Bug 344248): ...}

Martin Maechler
PLEASE, PLEASE:
do use
        [hidden email]
and nothing else
(It will go to Kopenhagen alright currently,
 but if we could ensure everyone used the above address,
 it would become quite a bit easier to prevent most spam to get
 into the R bug repository)

Perhaps
http://bugs.r-project.org/cgi-bin/R
should be updated then?

That's internal to the bug repository. It does everything by email,
and at some point messages need to reach the program invoked by the
mail server. Sending things to Zurich and back seems a bit silly....

Oops. You were talking about the email address on the front page? I'll
fix that one to point to Zurich.
