second file to compare.

They are almost the same save for the first line and the last 10 or so lines.

They have a repeating pattern for a reason as they were used to test high speed
flash programming on a microcontroller.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

This should be reassigned to kdesdk.
I couldn't reproduce with FC6.
Comment 5 Matthew Miller 2007-04-10 20:02:15 EDT
