  I removed the .elinks directory just to be sure.

1. First the crash

ELinks crashed. That shouldn't happen. Please report this incident to
developers. Preferrably please include information about what probably
triggered this and the listout below. Note that it does NOT supercede the gdb
output, which is way more useful for developers. If you would like to help to
debug the problem you just uncovered, please keep the core you just got and
send the developers output of 'bt' command entered inside of gdb (which you run
as gdb elinks core). Thanks a lot for your cooperation!

ELinks 0.5pre7
Features: Debug, SSL (OpenSSL), IPv6, Bookmarks, Cookies, Global History,

2. gdb

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

122             foreach (option, *((struct list_head *) tree->ptr)) {

3. configure options:

   I tried many combinations, including the usual : ./configure

4. System:

   Mandrake 9.0, kernel 2.4.19, glibc 2.2.5
