  • Field changed: Summary (Buffer overflow detected → [nickle] Buffer overflow detected)
"the program" is extremely vague, in the future please fill out complete bugreports so we don't have to investigate just so we can find out what package you are talking about.

Sorry for the incompleteness. I discovered I have missed some information (package name & executable name) later reviewing this ticket.
Comment by Rikard Falkeborn (Herk) - Friday, 26 January 2018, 21:54 GMT
I can confirm that 2.70-5 crashes with buffer overflow at startup and that 2.80-1 does not.
