Description accot 1999-02-16 18:10:05 UTC
When the version number contains a '-' (that was the case of
ftp.freshmeat.net/pub/freshmeat/rpms/x11amp/x11amp-0.9-alpha3-1.src.rpm)
rpm wants to print an error message, but dumps core.

That was with rpm-2.91-5 but it's the same with rpm-2.91-8

--
(gdb) r -bb /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/x11amp.spec
Starting program: /bin/rpm -bb

Fixed in both production and development branches in rpm CVS tree --
two arguments were reversed in the error message.
