Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 821263
Uniq multi-byte patch incompatibilities
Last modified: 2013-08-14 10:43:37 EDT
Description of problem:
As multibyte patch contains different paths from upstream and it is hard to
track the changes in behaviour, this bugzilla will be to track found
incompatibilites && fixes in coreutils-i18n patch for uniq utility.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Call following commands with LC_ALL=C and LC_ALL=fr_FR.UTF-8 locales
a) echo -n -e "aaa\naaa\n" | uniq -s1
b) echo -n -e "baa\naaa\n" | uniq -s1
c) echo -n -e "aaa\naaa\n" | uniq -s1 --
d) echo -n -e "baa\naaa\n" | uniq -s1 --
Results are different (or command fails)
Results should be same
mistakes found after applying attached patch (it adds multibyte tests for utilities cut, expand, fold, join, pr, sort, unexpand, uniq)

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
More information and reason for this action is here:
Jaromir Koncicky checked the failures, these mentioned in description are no longer failing, other failures in cut/uniq are caused by different "'" character in multibyte/singlebyte version of uniq and in obsolete syntax check. I think there is nothing to fix atm, closing NOTABUG.
