Description K Accardi 2002-01-09 00:07:02 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20010901

Description of problem:
rpm-4.0.3-1.03 (supplied with 7.2)
doesn't find matching files using built-in ftp client.
Used to work with rpm-4.0.2-7x (Updated 7.0)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -Fvvh*
D: logging into as ftp, pw (username)
D: found 0 source and 0 binary packages 

2. Specifing wu-ftpd-2.6.1-20.i386.rpm works fine (the file exists on the ftp

3. Globbing works if file is in current dir (local)
ie. rpm -Fvh ./wu*

Actual Results:  wu-ftpd-2.6.1-20 was not found on ftp server

Expected Results:  wu-ftpd package should have been updated

Additional info:

I can't believe this is the first report of this.  (Searches turned up empty). 
This will break thousands of scripts if it is real.

Fixed in rpm-4.0.3 final, packages at ftp://ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/dist/rpm-4.0.x

Thanks, that works.  Um, shouldn't this be easier to find, like in Errata?  Or
are we sweeping it under the rug?
