Crash when trying to add commands

Bug #94376 reported by David Harper
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
multitail (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: multitail

Whenever I try to add a command like "top" or "ps" to multitail, it crashes out with a segmentation fault.

Running Edgy with Multitail 4.0.6-1

I'll attach the crash log next.

Confirmed. Steps to reproduce the segfault : launch multitail, type 'a' to open a new window, answer 'c' for command then 'top' when asked for the command to run. Choose any color (I've tested with all colors available), wait 1s, then the segmentation fault occurs.

Seems to be fixed upstream, I cannot reproduce the bug with current feisty version, aka 4.2.0-1

Removing the milestone for Edgy since the milestone has passed and Edgy is no longer supported. Additionally, I tried recreating this bug on Intrepid but was unable to get multitail to print anything an error regarding a terminal type.

Changed in multitail:
milestone: ubuntu-6.10 → none
