If Hugh's counting is accurate, that would be this commit:

  Modified files:
	usr.bin/col >   : col.c 

  Log message:
  1) Fix a segfault triggered by an input line containing two consecutive
  backspace characters beyond column MAX_SHRT, overflowing c_column.
  2) Fix imcomplete initialization of the final element of the *count
  array by adding a missing pair of parentheses.
  3) For code clarity and extra safety, change all variables dealing
  with column numbers from int to size_t such that they cannot overflow.
  Found while reviewing the patch from deraadt@'s reallocarray() rampage.
  Feedback and OK millert@.

It would be fitting if a jubilee commit in OpenBSD were a small bugfix that resulted from a code audit that resulted from introducing a new library interface intended to modernize and improve secure coding practices.
