The last 2 lines are from the crashed session on the NetBSD box ....
This could well be some obscure case of incompatible interactions,
however it *is* a plague for me :-/ .... Need anything else, please ask.
TIA & have a good one ....
Yes, but the crash is on the FreeBSD side. Try using xterm instead of
or ask for help in the FreeBSD lists.


Yeah, but it only happens when shelled into NetBSD-7 on the RPiB+, nowhere
else, including various linux boxen, i.e. it seems to be the specific combo
of ssh in from FBSD 9.3R under rxvt/tcsh *to* NetBSD-7 evbarm-earmv6hf ....
i.e. only unique factor is NetBSD-7 (beta :-) ) involvement ....

P.S. I did post it to Freebsd-questions, we'll see what happens there ....
Thanks, BTW :-) ....
If you were looking for things to test to throw up more data points.

- Test ssh into a netbsd-7 x86
- Copy the terminfo entry for the terminal type from the NetBSD box to
the FreeBSD box and run nvi there
- Set terminal type to vt100 or similar
- Test different shell (ksh) and/or terminal emulator (xterm) on FreeBSD
- ssh into NetBSD box, then back onto FreeBSD and test (to see if its
ssh interaction)
- If on secure local network test via telnet or rlogin instead of ssh
- Run vim on the NetBSD box
- Build rxvt on the NetBSD box and run in that (probably via DISPLAY
onto the FreeBSD box)


As people said, most likely a bug in rxvt on FreeBSD which is being
triggered by the specific sequences sent from vi on the NetBSD box...

I agree w/ that last point, just don't know how to be much help diagnosing ....

in order from above:

i.e. a lot of gobblety-gook (to me) ....

logged in through an xterm: *SUCCESS* !!!! (or at least no quick, gratuitous crash ....) font barely readable, hate the scroll bar (both fixable, I *think*), but it did work ....

vim not installed on NetBSD-7 box, no repos, etc.

no monitor hooked up, it is running as a (tiny) server on my LAN, can't run rxvt natively.

In short, looks like an issue between rxvt on FreeBSD 9.3Rp13 & vi on NetBSD-7 ARM. The box is mostly working, I was hoping my clues so far would be enough to point someone towards a problem, but apparently not. I will see about getting an xterm configuration I can live with & use that to access the NetBSD-7 ARM box .... Thanks :-) ....
