How reproducible:

I reproduced this, but it wasn't spot "^M SpotFunctio", it was more like "^M
<random binary here>".

It was there since install on a brand new FC4 machine.

I believe this is related to bug 170895, as I also experience this and it also
involves damage to fstab.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 3 Oliver Cole 2007-01-20 06:11:47 EST
Have been unable to reproduce since on FC4, not currently upgrading original box.
Comment 4 petrosyan 2008-02-17 01:03:48 EST
Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
