[Lynx-dev] Strange dependency on $HOME, crash with -dump -stdin, no cras

Subject: [Lynx-dev] Strange dependency on $HOME, crash with -dump -stdin, no crash without -stdin

User-agent: Mutt/1.5.15cvs (2007-04-12)


my normal command line is like this:
        lynx -force_html -stdin -dump < file > outfile
        cmd | lynx -force_html -stdin -dump > outfile

BUT, this fails, crash, segv, core dump.
Run with "gdb" (with a stripped lynx bin :( ) and using "backtrace",
it revealed this list:

------ QUOTE BEGIN ------
(gdb) run -stdin -dump < bla2.html > bla
Starting program: lynx -stdin -dump < bla2.html > bla
(no debugging symbols found)...(no debugging symbols found)...
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0xfefc2d2c in _free_unlocked () from /usr/lib/
(gdb) backtrace
#0  0xfefc2d2c in _free_unlocked () from /usr/lib/
#1  0xfefc2ce4 in free () from /usr/lib/
#2  0xd7690 in HTSACopy ()
#3  0x653e4 in LYmktime ()
#4  0x6555c in IsOurFile ()
#5  0x91f68 in HTFormatInit ()
#6  0x48590 in main ()
------- QUOTE END -------

Now, when I change it to run without stdin, it works fine.
        lynx -force_html -stdin -dump file > outfile

I've encountered this with other tools before, so I have no idea
what the cause is: the app (lynx2.8.7dev.5) or the shell (ksh88) or
OS (solaris8). It seems not shell related (fails with sh + bash, too).
However, when not normal NFS-$HOME is changed to /tmp/..., then it
works, too.
 How can I proceed tracking it down?

However, it doesn't fail with every file: I've attached an example
spam that has been sent as .xls and converted via xls2html.
