Subject: lynx-cur: Segfault when trying to dump a mailto: URL
Date: Fri, 01 Jan 2010 15:02:45 -0600
Package: lynx-cur
Version: 2.8.8dev.2-1
Severity: minor

$ lynx --dump mailto:root@localhost
lynx[6278]: segfault at 10 ip 08052c2f sp bfa35640 error 6 in
lynx.cur[8048000+122000]
Segmentation fault

I don't actually expect dumping a mailto: URL to actually work, but I have a
feeling that a segfault is not the appropriate behavior. What I would expect
is an error message to the effect of "Can't dump mailto: URL" and for lynx to
end with an error status code.
