[bug-gv] gv crash for a certain bounding box

     I experienced a bug with gv version 3.6.1 on Linux Ubuntu 5.04 (AMD
    Athlon 64 computer), Mac OS X 10.3.9 (gv version from the "fink" porting
    system, PowerPC computer) and gv version 3.5.8 on SunOS 5.8 (Ultra Sparc
    computer). On the PowerPC computer I get a "bus error" and on the Ultra
    Sparc and intel-like computer a segmentation fault.
     The bug is triggered when the Bounding Box of the to-be-viewed PostScript
    file is: "0 0 499 709" (this is specific to these values, for instance for
    710 instead of 709 everything is fine). To reproduce it, it suffices to
    write the following to lines into a .ps file:
    %%BoundingBox: 0 0 499 709
    and to launch gv on the file.

Thanks for your report. I am going to see what is happening with this.
