The unrecog_head should have been placed into the 'bss' section and
should be getting initialized to NULL when cvs is first loaded.

If you have the core file, you should look to see what unrecognized type
was being preserved in the FILEATTR file in your repository.

If I had to guess, you have something corrupt in your repository in a
CVS/fileattr file.

If you can describe the problem you have, we can look into making cvs
more robust for future releases.

        Good luck,
