hi list

vdr 2.1.2 segfaults in libc, as soon as I use the terminal syntax (vdr  
--genindex) to recreate a missing index file. Trying the same thing in a  
user interface (vdr-sxfe) works as planed.

Here's a backtrace of what's happing:

vdr source is unpatched, built using "make LCLBLD=1"

OS is Ubuntu 12.04 & Debian/Squeeze. Any ideas what is causing this? Can  
somebody else reproduce this as well with an unpatched source?
