last command: find / /usr /var -xdev -type f -print | sort |
while read x; do md5 "$x"; done >md5.2
Report this to email@example.com

PS: I've reported this to firstname.lastname@example.org,
but thought you should be aware as well.

message with a short script that causes the problem? Otherwise
we're probably not going to be able to fix this.
timeout, please reopen if you have more information, thanks.
