Okay.  First try running 'src/nano --ignore', to exclude the possible
influence of any settings and of unexpected characters in the exsisting
history file.  If that still segfaults, then try instead of (size_t)-1
the values 100, 255, 32000, 65535.  If none of those segfault, then at
least we have a workaround: nobody is going to type sixty-five thousand
characters to search for.

Put back (size_t)-1 and then run 'gdb src/nano', type 'run', make it
segfault, and then type 'backtrace'.
