Description R P Herrold 2000-06-18 20:46:44 EDT
rpm -qf on a directory with the trailing / returns an error.

This is wrong behavior but not crippling:

[root@localhost mail]# rpm -qf /var/spool/mail/
*** db3 dbcursor->c_get rc -1 Invalid argument
error getting "" records from Basenames index
file /var/spool/mail/ is not owned by any package
[root@localhost mail]# rpm -qf /var/spool/mail 
[root@localhost mail]# 

Solution -- if there is a training /  chop it off a 'filename' before
running the query.

Fixed in rpm-4.0-0.47. BTW, the following will now work as well

	cd /bin
	rpm -qf .

Thanks for the report.
