Bash Version:

  I used the following latest commit from the devel branch.

  commit bf5b8103d466fdbc3bfcdaa5e21a0d0c0dce7cba
  Author: Chet Ramey <address@hidden>

      commit bash-20180309 snapshot


  At the line lib/readline/bind.c:376, an uninitialized variable `ic'
is used to assign a value to the variable `prevkey'. This assignment
to `prevkey' should be later than the assignment to `ic'. This causes
segmentation faults in Bash of the devel branch. There is no such
problem in Bash 4.4.


  I noticed this bug in the following reduced case causing the
segmentation fault, but it should depend on environments because
accessing uninitialized variables generally results in undefined

  $ bash-5.0.0 --norc
  $ bind -r '\C-j'
  $ bind -r `\C-m`
  Segmentation fault


  I attach a patch file.
