Bug#563071: vim-nox: segfault after setpos(".", [0, 1, 0, 0])

Package: vim-nox
Version: 2:7.2.284-1
Severity: normal

After calling setpos(".", [0, 1, 0, 0]) vim behaves strangely, some functions
not working, x (delete) causes a segfault

To reproduce run on a shell:

echo foo > foo; vim -u NONE -U NONE -c 'call setpos(".", [0, 1, 0, 0])' -c 'normal x' foo

I can reproduce this with vim-nox and vim (i.e. vim.basic) on two different
machines with x86 userland and -686 kernel (2.6.26-2-xen-686 on the other).

When using
setpos(".", [0, 1, 1, 0])
the problem does not occur.

On Debian etch (vim 1:7.1.314-3+lenny2) the problem does not exist.
