Description John Jetmore 2003-01-31 14:24:04 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0; H010818)

Description of problem:
running 'uname -V' exits the shell.  Ran it su'd to root and it exited me back 
to my login shell.  Ran it from my login shell and it logged me out entirely.  
Also tried uname -T to see if it was specific to -V, and -T produced same 

Additionally, in the error message the path to uname is incorrect.  error 
lists /usr/bin/uname, actual location is /bin/uname.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. uname -V

Actual Results:  I received error w/ incorect path and my session was terminated

Expected Results:  I should have received error w/ correct path and _not_ been 
logged out.

Additional info:

Example output:

rizzo 0 /home/jetmore ># uname -T
/usr/bin/uname: invalid option -- T
Try `/usr/bin/uname --help' for more information.
rizzo 1 /home/jetmore >

Sounds like you have 'set -e' in effect in your shell.

The path is correct in coreutils in rawhide.
