I run nmap like this:

and after some time, it eventually ends with a segfault.

Seriously, it ends with a simple "Segmentation fault" and nothing else
to help explain from where the segfault came.

The last bit looks like this:
NSOCK (1524.9210s) Callback: READ SUCCESS for EID 770
[xxx.yyy.zzz.153:5988] (69 bytes): HTTP/1.1 401
Unauthorized..WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="ANLYX2"....
SCRIPT ENGINE: TCP xxx.yyy.zzz.50:34039 < xxx.yyy.zzz.153:5988 |
HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="ANLYX2"

NSOCK (1524.9210s) msevent_delete (IOD #28) (EID #770)
NSOCK (1524.9210s) wait_for_events
NSOCK (1524.9210s) PCAP read_on_nonselect
NSOCK (1524.9210s) PCAP END read_on_nonselect
SCRIPT ENGINE: TCP xxx.yyy.zzz.50:34039 > xxx.yyy.zzz.153:5988 | CLOSE
Segmentation fault

I am attaching a file with all the output starting from when SCRIPT
ENGINE first showed up.  I hope anyway.  I could only scroll back 5000
lines.  If you need more, I can run it again (it is reproducible) and
tee the output or something.


if you can still reproduce this problem with the most recent svn nmap  
version I'd like to ask you a few things:

1) does this happen if you only scan the .153 host? Can you give some  
more information about that host? Like, is there some service running  
on 5988? And if there is, what service is it?

2) would you mind sending that attachment of yours packed with some  
more common archiving tool?
