Summary:                    ls -laR seg faults on large directory trees -
erratic
Description: 
We are using busybox 1.4.2 cross compiled for a ppc 82xx arch with kernel
2.4.18 (Monta Vista Linux modified) and glibc 3.2.1 and are having the
following problem which happens a lot but not all the time: ls -laR just
gives "Segmentation Fault".
There was a thread about a similar issue in March
(http://buildroot.busybox.net/lists/busybox/2007-March/026780.html) but it
was for version 1.4.1 and was apparently fixed by 1.4.2 (or maybe not?)
We are not really familiar with the code - is there any way to start
narrowing this down to find out what the problem is?

Thanks,
/Danny

Sorry - it's been categorized as "Documentation" by mistake, but apparently
I can't change this now (no privileges?)

Test 1.6.1 and/or svn.
If it still doesn't work, find exact location of segfault and inform
mailing list.
