Comment 27 for bug 42264

I confirm this trivial dd command:

    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/null bs=1k count=1

crashes with a fresh Ubuntu 6.06 installation off the CD with updates. (i386, 32-bit).

It crashes for LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 and LANG=en_US.UTF-8 but not LANG=C, LANG=en_GB or LANG=en_US.

I found this to be a problem when various build processes (which use dd) for my own programs started crashing...
