If I try the example in the nc manpage for cygwin:
printf "GET / HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n" | nc host.example.com 80
I get a segfault and a stackdump every time.
The nc prior to nc-1.107-1 didn't have this problem.
nc-1.107-1 had this problem, but with it I could use
the nc "-w 1" option and avoid the problem. With
1.107-2 I can't find any value for -w that works, I just
get the seg fault. The nc on ubuntu 10.04 requires "-q 1"
but never segfaults even without that option. There seems not
to be a -q option for this nc.
This happens with every "host.example" I've tried,
so hopefully this is easily reproducable by the maintainers.
