Yes, the problem here is that Debian (and Ubuntu) use an ancient version of mawk
that dumps core too often. They really should upgrade. I can reproduce the
problem with mawk 1.3.3 (November 1996), which is the default on Ubuntu 16.04.4
LTS. I cannot reproduce the problem with mawk 1.3.4 20171017.
I reported this problem to the Ubuntu maintainers here:
I assume It'll take some time for Ubuntu and/or Debian to push fixes out. In the
meantime I installed the attached commentary patch to the tzdb makefile.
You can also work around the problem by running:
sudo update-alternatives --config awk
and choosing gawk instead of mawk.
