Why do you think it's not acceptable? Why do you raise a stink *one*
day after the patch - that seems to not be very important - is sent

Why would SIGSEGV even be that bad? The program does crap things, why
accept it silently?

I don't think the patch is necessarily wrong, but I don't see why it
would be critical, and I *definitely* don't see why the f*ck you are
making a big deal of it.

Go away, stop bothering people.
