freeze when display help

Bug #201769 reported by Mitsuya Shibata on 2008-03-13
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

nano (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nano

In 2.0.7-1, nano freeze when display Japanese help messeage.

LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 nano

Because Japanese language usually don't use separatable character in sentence, nano fail to discover where to break line, and go to infinity loop. I have sent patch to upstream ML(*), but I have no reply.

This doesn't look like a proper debdiff but I will hack it into shape.

Ah sorry I am too sleepy to realize what I was looking at. Its a diff.gz, ok that should be relatively simple. In the future debdiff's are easier to deal with. If you don't know how to create a debdiff then please see here:

It doesn't cause that much more work for the developer sponsoring but it is easier to see what is changed especially on launchpad.
