Description of problem:
After updating to fileutils 4.1-10.1 the -f (--force) command doesn't work.
It prompts for an yes or no anyway.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. just try to overwrite (cp) a map with the --force command
Actual Results: cp prompts for yes or no anyway
Expected Results: It should just overwrite the old files
And 4.1-10 (which shipped with Red Hat Linux 7.2) didn't have this behaviour?
No came just after the update.
Just tried this with 4.1-4 and it happens there too. Not a regression.
