reproducible crash in nano on trying to save to a file different than the one specified on the command line
Nominated for Lucid by ski
Binary package hint: nano
Steps to reproduce:
1) Put some content into a file, e.g. echo f >f
2) open nano without arguments, or with a filename argument different from the above
3) ^O to save your work into the file 'f' (if you started nano with no arguments, you can also trigger the bug via ^X)
4) Watch nano segfault.
This happens every time. Since nano is the default editor, this is critical. I don't know how other people use nano but I like to be able to save important work with a different filename, and a segfault is unacceptable here.
