Bug Description

Binary package hint: dzen2

When installing i3status Ubuntu fetch dzen2 since that's the favorite notification manager for it. However when running

$ i3status | dzen2

It crashes with a "stack smashing error", the complete log is in the attachment.

I've downloaded and run the latest svn version and it works ok, so I could suggest, as pointed out in this Debian's bug ( that you update the package.

Description: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Release: 10.04
  Installed: 0.8.5-3
  Candidate: 0.8.5-3

Thanks in advance

A shell script like the following causes the crash as well:

status() {
while true; do
    echo -n 'foo'

status | dzen2
