'Tis also possible that there's something "special" in your
wordlist.txt file that's causing trouble. If you'd care to bzip2 it
and ftp it to ftp.bogofilter.org, I can check out that possibility.
By the way, I've looked at the core file you sent me and it was built
with " GCC: (GNU) 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)".
Unfortunately that puts it squarely into the "built by person or
persons unknown" category, and there's no telling what options were
used for the build.
If you'd care to upload a core file from bogoutil v1.0.0, I can take a
look at that too.
