NetBSD dk-17 7.1_STABLE NetBSD 7.1_STABLE (GENERIC) #2: Mon May  7 00:17:32 CEST 2018  sysbuild@dk-17:/home/sysbuild/amd64/obj/home/sysbuild/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/GENERIC amd64
Trying to access packages management system in emacs 25.3.1 cause this error:

"Invalid hash table rehash size" 1.0

on non windowed mode M-X list-packages works as expected.

The problem seems be reported on another distribution :

hope it helps.

here the complete backtrace:
