This problem is fixed in busybox-1.2.2-9.fc7 which will be in test branch soon.
Comment 3 D. Hugh Redelmeier 2007-12-14 12:37:24 EST
I think that means it will appear in
It's not there yet.
The busybox site lists 1.8.2 as the latest stable version. 1.2.2 dates back to
October 2006.

F8 uses 1.6.1 (2007 June) as a base.  It does not have this bug nor does it have
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=423781 .  Would it be good to rebase
to 1.6.1?
Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2007-12-15 12:50:05 EST
busybox-1.2.2-9.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
 If you want to test the update, you can install it with 
 su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update busybox'
