When I run
./xmovie dummy.dat
to test the xmovie application, I get a segmentation fault.

But I successfully can run other dump.foobar data files in xmovie (e.g. indent, colloid, etc)

When I checked the format of dummy.dat, it appears to be using an older format (POSITIONS, and TIME). So I matched its format to what I found in other files, and now I found that as long as I only send 256 frames to xmovie, that I get the little dot bouncing around the screen. But if I send 257 frames to xmovie, I get a segmentation fault! Is this an inherent limitation to xmovie? I did just notice that each of the other data files I have sent to xmovie contain less than 256 frames…

FYI, I am running on MAC OS 10.4.11 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and I compiled xmovie with the “mac” library line “LIBS = $(XLIBDIR) -lX11 -lXaw -lXt -lXext -lXmu -lXpm”

I don't have any problem running "xmovie dummy.dat" on my
box. There should be no limitation on the number of frames
xmovie reads in. I use xmovie on a Linux box. I've never
built it on a Mac.
