This is time consuming and will overflow stack if n is huge. ” <https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?45713> Upstream fix: http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/screen.git/commit/?id=b7484c224738247b510ed0d268cd577076958f1b Debian bug: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=797624 MScrollV creates a very large stack frame, so it could theoreticall jump over the guard page at the top of the stack, and it might be feasible to exploit this for something else besides denial-of-service.
