Yes, it does segfault, but after it has done it's job. Can't say that I'm happy with that though. Racy is using the latest Busybox 1.19.2, reported recently in this blog. I tested 1.17.2, that we have been using for sometime in Puppy, and that works without the segfault.
So, I have rolled Busybox back to 1.17.2 in the 'common' repo. I know that 1.19.2 has more features, and some bug fixes, however 1.17.2 works well. I just want to quickly restore to a known working and well-tested Busybox. I recompiled 1.17.2 and enabled the 'sha1sum', 'readahead' and 'rfkill' applets.
The PET will be uploaded to the 'common' repo soon.
