The fix was made by Redhat,

It was a one char bug

                                 b->oldcur = pdup(b->bof, USTR "main");
                                 pline(b->oldcur, get_file_pos(b->name));
-                               p_goto_bol(bw->cursor);
+                               p_goto_bol(b->oldcur);
                                 line = b->oldcur->line - (maint->h - 1) / 2;

> It would be  an update to cauldron, and a backport for Mageia 1 (unless it was in Mandriva 2010.1/2, in which case it would be an update).
