Calls to wait() result in segmentation fault

I just started playing with Lua scripting in Celestia, and it looks like many of the scripts fail with the following:

Code: Select all

Error: [string "string"]:1: attempt to index a nil value (global 'coroutine')
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

It looks like this occurs whenever wait() is called. Unfortunately, most scripts call wait() at some point.

I'm using the build of Celestia 1.6.1 that is provided through the Fedora 25 repository. Architecture is x86_64.

Have others encountered this bug? Is there a workaround?
