If you give a random option to the "spell" command in a terminal the program segmentation faults and dumps core, If you open the core file in gdb it shows that the program seg faulted at fgets(). Which this shouldnt happen...
-bash-2.05b$ spell something_random_here
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
