bug#27585: segfault when evaluating a file containing only backticks


From: Steve Kemp
Subject: bug#27585: segfault when evaluating a file containing only backticks
Date: Wed, 05 Jul 2017 06:21:10 +0000

  I've recently started fuzzing GNU Emacs, using the current git sources.
 During the course of that work I stumbled upon this easily reproduced bug:

   deagol ~ $ perl -e 'print "`" x ( 1024 * 1024  * 12);' > t.el
   deagol ~ $ /usr/bin/emacs --batch --script ./t.el
   ..
   Segmentation fault (core dumped)

  (So I'm trying to call "emacs --batch --script $file" where the file
 contains thousands of repeated backtick-characters.)

  Because I've built from source I can see this backtrace:

#5  handle_sigsegv (sig=11, siginfo=<optimized out>, arg=<optimized out>)

  I've replicated this upon the package of GNU Emacs as available to
 the old-stable/jessie release of Debian GNU/Linux, which identifies
 itself as:


In GNU Emacs 24.5.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.14.5)

  My current-git build reports as:

  "Obviously" this same bug can be reproduced inside emacs:

    1.  Open Emacs.
    2.  Create a new buffer.
    3.  Fill the buffer with `
    4.  Ctrl-x h
    5.  M-x eval-region
