Sort in textutils-2.0e-6 loops on very large files
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:01 EDT
using /bin/sort on a file of approximately 360MB generates 82 tmp files
and then continues racking up cpu time indefinitely with no additional
/bin/sort from textutils-2.0a-2 works fine on the same file on the same
2.0.11 should fix this.
