*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 17928 ***
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2001-09-17 14:49:29 EDT
how is this a dup of 17928, Brent?
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-09-19 15:40:16 EDT
It looks like a bad cd, which was the cause of bug #17928.  Also looks like a
dupe of #26915.  

adam@netsonic.net, are these cd's that you burned yourself?
