segfault at 0001 eip 080743b4 esp bffe5a14 error 4

Reverted back to xterm-229 and problem goes away.

Both version compiled with gcc-4.2.2, and glibc-2.7, running with fvwm.

Thanks,
Jeff.

thanks.

ANN: xterm #230

2007-12-31 Thread Thomas Dickey
Patch #230 - 2007/12/31

 * add   quietGrab  resource,  which  when  true,  suppresses  cursor
   repainting  when  NotifyGrab  and  NotifyUngrab  event  types  are
   received during change of focus (request by Nicolas George).
 * do   not  treat  Unicode  BIDI  control  characters  as  combining
   characters (Debian #457634).
 * add koi8rxterm, from Debian.
 * add  manpage  for  uxterm,  from  Debian  (Ubuntu  #128136, Debian
   #438645)
 * remove  .xpm suffixes from Icon filenames in desktop files since
   it   confuses   some   lookups   following  the  [234]Icon  Theme
   Specification (report by Slava Semushin)
 * correct  width-calculation  used for adjusting proportional fonts,
   to work with wide-characters (Debian #441354).
 * fixes/improvements for double-size characters:
  + correct  old  clipping calculation which used total height of
glyphs where ascent was needed.
  + if bold font is unavailable, fall back to normal font
  + adjust   to   work   with   Xft  (which  does  not  support
double-width single-height characters).
  + restore  reset  of  doublesize for a line when it is cleared,
broken in [235]patch #228.
 * modify  logic for forceBoxChars resource when using TrueType fonts
   to be consistent with bitmap fonts
 * modify  logic for forceBoxChars resource to make the Line-Drawing
   Characters  menu  entry  use xterm's line-drawing characters even
   asked  to draw wide line-drawing characters which are available in
   the font.
 * modify   rectangle-support   functions  to  preserve  colors  when
   filling/erasing  (request by Enzo Toscano, to match WRQ Reflection
   behavior).
 * add  getopt-parsing to tcapquery.pl, including feature to test the
   extended cursor/editing keys.
 * make  missing  double-width glyphs display as double-width (Debian
   #456236).
 * change  tcap-fkeys and rectangles configure options to enable them
   by default.
 * hide  the  mouse  pointer while user is typing (request by Rodolfo
   Borges).
 * extend  configure  options --enable-tcap-query and
   --enable-tcap-fkeys   to  send  cursor-  and  editing-keypad  keys
   modified  according  to  the  keyboard  (or termcap) selection for
   shift, alt, control, meta.
 * modify  kdch1  in  termcap,  e.g.,  xterm-r6 to match the terminfo
   file.
 * add -hm option to turn highlightColorMode on or off.
 * add  highlightColorMode  resource to separate the new (since patch
   #225) highlighting with both text- and background-colors (prompted
   by report/example by Thomas Wolff).
 * add Keep Selection menu entry to turn the keepSelection resource
   on/off at runtime.
 * add  keepSelection  resource,  which  when enabled, tells xterm to
   retain  the X selection even after it stops highlighting it (patch
   by Sergey Vlasov).
 * extend  the  CSI  n  sequence  to  allow  disabling  all types of
   modified-keys that the CSI  m sequence affects.
 * move include for xtermcap.h in resize.c to avoid redefinition of
   termios  structure  on  OpenSolaris  (report  by  Rahul Gopinathan
   Nair).
 * extend  terminfo  building  blocks  for  modified  editing keys to
   include all six keys.
 * synchronize terminfo with ncurses (report by Stephane Chazelas):
  + equate xterm-xfree86 and xterm-xf86-v44.
  + add ncurses extensions OTbs, AX, for termcap conversions.
  + make  old/legacy  entries  such  as  xterm-24,  xterm-65  and
aliases xterms, vs100 inherit from xterm-old.
  + make  xterm-r5  and  xterm-r6  the  same, ignoring historical
errors in X Consortium's version.
 * fix an ifdef in logic for selecting regular expressions while in a
   narrow-character locale (Debian #449227).
