Bug Description

In all versions prior to 1.12 there is a SIGSEGV in human readable value generation code. This problem renders the program unusable on machines with high values (>10000TB for any displayed value).

Since nothing else depends on this package, I believe that this request is reasonable.

Also consider that this is the first release of Ubuntu to include this package (not directly, from Debian) and the feature improvements from 1.9 (currently in Ubuntu) to 1.12 would not affect user experience.

iotop-c 1.12 packaging is here:
https://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/i/iotop-c/iotop-c_1.12-1.dsc

I am not sure if I file this bug too early, since 1.12 would take some time to be included in Debian first.

1.14 was accepted into unstable and it looks like a couple of days are needed to come into testing.
