Package: links2
Version: 2.11-1
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream


when invoking the About window from the Help menu and then selecting 'Version', 
Links will crash immediately.
Back in the shell I'm left with the following information:

INTERNAL ERROR at menu.c.:211: menu_version: text mismatched
Forcing core dump
Segmentation fault

Selecting "Ok" instead closes the window and leaves the menu context, as 
expected. Since I haven't seen this 
before and the system I'm filing the bug from doesn't produce core dumps, I can 
unfortunately not provide one 
yet. The behavior is however easily reproducible and it doesn't appear as if 
anything I did before is relevant. 
The same crash occurs if it's the first thing I do upon starting Links. It also 
doesn't matter whether Links is 
running in text or graphics mode.

While I'd like to mention that the About page already states "Links 2.11", 
which one may think renders a further
"Version" option somewhat redundant: It's still there, and can be selected, so 
whatever one might expect from it,
the program should not crash.

Thank you.
