Bash Version: 4.2
Patch Level: 53
Release Status: release

        Bash 4.3 introduced "-1" for unlimited history.

        Starting bash 4.2 with HISTSIZE=-1 in ~/.bashrc causes a segmentation
        fault (assuming you have a ~/.bash_history with at least one entry).
        This can easily happen if several systems (with different bash
        versions) mount the same home directory.

        $ cat > poc-bashrc <<EOF
        # Make sure you have at least one entry in your history file!
        $ bash --rcfile ./poc-bashrc
        Segmentation fault (core dumped)

        # Here's the backtrace.
        (gdb) bt
