Description Karsten Hopp 2008-07-18 10:47:03 EDT
Description of problem:
I used to use zero filled, 3 digit patch numbers in vim. The old rpm just
worked, the new one seems to think that %patch008 is an oktal number and
complains: 'error: invalid numeric value: 008: %patch008 -p0'. It continues
after that which looks like another bug to me.

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