Description of problem:
Latest sort breaks autofs.  /var/log messages contains:

Oct 29 09:59:08 ontap automount[19246]: >> sort: open failed: +0: No such file
or directory
Oct 29 09:59:08 ontap automount[19246]: lookup(program): lookup for barrel failed
Oct 29 09:59:08 ontap automount[19246]: failed to mount /net/barrel

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.cd /net/barrel
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
Breakage occurs on both i386 and x86_64.

Reverting to coreutils-5.2.1-56 fixes the problem.

See also bug# 166328 "Thunderbird won't start after update" 
I theorize that that bug is also caused by the new sort.
Comment 2 Alexandre Oliva 2005-10-31 11:39:25 EST
coreutils is not to blame, it's just following the POSIX standard.  Read
/usr/share/doc/coreutils-5.92/NEWS, search for `sort' in there.
