Comment 1 Need Real Name 2002-11-14 21:17:15 UTC
I was mistaken when I said you have to upgrade the kernel to see this bug. It 
will occur with the Linux 8.0 base kernel (2.4.18-14)

Comment 2 Roozbeh Pournader 2003-02-18 14:54:39 UTC
Also confirmed here with kernel version 2.4.18-24.8.0.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-19 06:28:53 UTC
This is fixed in 1.5.0-1
