1.13.1. RHBA-2009:1593: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1593
Updated bogl packages that fix a bug are now available.
Ben's Own Graphics Library (BOGL) is a small graphics library for Linux kernel frame buffers. It supports only very simple graphics. The bogl packages also include bterm, a Unicode-capable terminal program for the Linux frame buffer.
These updated packages provide a fix for the following bug:
* when editing a file with vi from within the bterm console, a SIGSEGV error could occur, causing both vi and bterm to crash. This update adds a check that keeps "yorig" from equaling -1, which prevents the underlying memory reference error occurring. (BZ#517957)
All bogl users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
