This segfault happens with Freeling v4.1 compiled with gcc (GCC) 8.2.1 20181127.

Steps to reproduce:

1. create test-1 file with sentence:

Si la massa de l'estrella se situa entre 0,5 i 8M, en esgotar tot l'hidrogen, el seu nucli posseïx una temperatura alta.

2. run analyzer in gdb with arguments run -f ~/.../ca-vanilla.cfg < ~/.../test-1
3. program will crash with
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
Using host libthread_db library "/usr/lib/".

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Adding a space between the 8 and the M gets rid of the error. This bug doesn't occur in master branch.

Yes, that bug was fixed in master some months ago (I also detected it when processing wikipedia  ;)

thank you!
