Package: bibutils
Version: 4.3-1
Severity: important


I observer the following problem on i386 arch:

$ xml2bib buggy.xml 
Segmentation fault
$ ls -l buggy.xml
-rw-r--r-- 1 tillea admin 2886795 Oct 27 15:31 buggy.xml

The same runs fine on amd64 architecture.  I can provide the
xml file in question but I do not want to blur the BTS with
3MB files.

Kind regards
