 And if this leads to segfaults it is surely a bug in gkt+? No, really,

 The most likely way to cause a segfault is to write to an address 
 not owned by the process... In C this is very easily because we sometimes 
 even calculate with pointers...

 Got me here, but since I don't exactly know what the bug is I can
 hardly explain it. I just know the symptoms and you do, too...

 ROTFL. Did you have a look how M$ does internationalisation?
 Have you ever seen a catalog for any Microsoft program? 
 No? Maybe it's their special art of doing Cut'n'Paste... :))

 because they address firms (which don't care about it very much) on
 the one hand but on the other hand also users who want a stable
 OS with many free programs and they DO care about.
