Bug can't be reproduced:

Strange. The latest changes to the editor were made on
Aug 2. Maybe the theory that some memory is being
used incorrectly and this manifests in the crash you are

Well.. I made all mc builds using the same ./configure + make (same

don't decide to ignore this crash until you get another report, feel free

strace of MC too.

Here's the strace log, gzip'ed & attached.

Valgrind (memcheck) is still running after 2h :-). I'll post a link to the
compressed log if ever if completes.
