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.
This should be reassigned to kdesdk.
I couldn't reproduce with FC6.
So, based on comment #4, marking closed in current release.
