We can not reproduce this problem.
Comment 2 Phil Copeland 2002-03-11 15:47:26 EST
Actually this was down to an older diskutils package that got it's math wrong.
We couldn't reproduce it because,.. elliot had already rebuilt the package with
a fix for i386 by the time we looked at it.

Lesson learned: don't underestimate of forget the importance of giving rpm
version numbers in bug reports 8)
