The actual directory used during the test was the "cd" directory which is set up
in the auto.misc file.
Comment 2 Jim Meyering 2006-07-26 10:19:50 EDT
This may be the bug that I fixed here: http://bugs.debian.org/375333
Can you try that patch and see if it solves your problem?
Or else, can you provide precise instructions for reproducing the bug?
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2006-07-26 11:00:28 EDT
Derek: please state the version and release number of the coreutils RPM you are
using (the output of 'rpm -q coreutils').  Thanks.
Comment 4 Florian La Roche 2007-03-08 10:55:58 EST
Closing this out, please reopen if this is still happening with the current
rpm packages.
