dd segfaults everytime

Bug #43157 reported by Ilya Petrov on 2006-05-05
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
coreutils (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: coreutils

% dd if=/dev/zero of=- bs=1024 count=1
1+0 records in
1+0 records out
[1] 16758 segmentation fault dd if=/dev/zero of=- bs=1024 count=1

it segfaults every time, but does all work propertly and returns nonzero return code ( $? = 139 ), so some scripts that use

dd blah-blah && some else

will not work
coreutils - 5.93-5ubuntu3
Ubuntu Dapper current

Which locale do you use? Does LOCALE=C dd work?

LANG=C dd if=/dev/zero of=- bs=1024 count=1 works

locale is ru_UA.UTF-8. it also segfaults on ru_RU.UTF but _not_ on uk_UA.UTF-8
