Hi all,

Info crashes when resizing terminal.

I saw patch for texifo-8.2 and related mailing list discussion,
but the problem still persists in texinfo-4.11, see:


For me, it crashes only when window height is small (about 4).
Width doesn't matter in my case. After some debugging I
realized, that value in windows->height is smaller than
zero (-2) during display_update_one_window function, which
leads to fall.

Attached patch is not solving the core of the problem, only
hiding its consequence and avoiding segfault.

If somebody has a time and is interested, I think problem is
somewhere in window.c functions, where window->height is set,
but I didn't find out where yet and don't know, when I'll spare
some time to look at it in detail again...

Best regards,
Vitezslav Crhonek
