Public bug reported:


since I've upgraded from 16.04 to 16.10, the zsh crashes quite often
with a segmentation fault.

I've noticed that this occurs not always, but if, then always in these
two cases:

- calling ls (in my case an alias for ls -F and thus the internal ls

- using file name completion

which both are related to opening directories and reading their
contents. I've done a strace, which seems to confirm this (crashing
within ls):


6781  fstat(3, {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0700, st_size=806, ...}) = 0
6781  lseek(3, 0, SEEK_SET)             = 0
6781  --- SIGSEGV {si_signo=SIGSEGV, si_code=SI_KERNEL, si_addr=0} ---
6781  +++ killed by SIGSEGV (core dumped) +++

which again implies problems pretty close to opening directories.
