Package: vim-lesstif
Version: 1:7.0-035+1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Lesstif variant of gvim does not work on my system and crashes during 
startup. There is backtrace log from the gdb:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x0000545c in ?? ()
(gdb) bt

I am not sure that it is vim-lesstif problem, it is likely a bug in the 
lesstif library, but it seriously affects vim, so I decided to report 
the vim bug. I have tried to rebuild the vim from sources with the 
latest lesstif library (0.95.0) and got exactly the same problem.

I am wondering does someone have the same results with vim-lesstif, 
or it is just my local problem?
