mairix segfaults

mairix (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: mairix

Version: 0.20-1


after updating to gutsy, mairix is segfaulting while indexing mails. I recompiled mairix without dh_strip to get debugging information:

(gdb) bt
#0 0x0805b8fb in nvp_next_state ()
#1 0x0805b489 in make_nvp ()
#2 0x0804edab in do_body ()
#3 0x0804f7db in data_to_rfc822 ()
#4 0x0804f461 in do_body ()
#5 0x0804f00a in do_body ()
#6 0x0804f7db in data_to_rfc822 ()
#7 0x0804fee9 in make_rfc822 ()
#8 0x0804bd87 in update_database ()
#9 0x0804a964 in main ()

I then recompiled mairix without the -O2 parameter and with -g, and it didn't segfault! So I assume that the -O2 is the problem. I don't know if this is a bug in mairix or in the gcc compiler, so I'm adding both...

This bug has already been fixed in Debian, see bug watch.

I also had the same problem. Is the patch going to be in Hardy? (The Debian patch was made by my friend Professor Chung-chieh Ken Shan!)
