Anyone have issues with wget segfaulting? I noticed that today when trying to wget something and just segfaults. Even trying a wget --version segfaults. What's broken?

there is a problem with the latest version of libgnutls-deb0-28
that causes segmentation fault in several programs.
i just downgraded the package to testing and put it on hold.
apt-get install libgnutls-deb0-28/testing
apt-mark hold libgnutls-deb0-28

I've did this and it now works. Wget was recently updated as it was rebuilt against new new libraries. However libgnutls-deb0-28 as well as libgnutls-openssl27 I put on hold. Turns out these packages need to be rebuilt against new version of Nettle, and that hasn't been done yet.

All the affected packages now have been rebuilt and no more errors relating to the Nettle transition.
