Description C.M. Connelly 2003-03-12 14:53:44 EST
Description of problem:

``dircolors -p'' prints out a list of the file types that can be colorized (with
ls --color) that can be modified.  One of these is 

   DOOR 01;35	# door

When you use ``eval `dircolors <dbfile>`'' to reload your modified database, or
even just ``eval `dircolors`'' to restore the color database to the default, it

   Unknown colorls variable `do'.

The colors are changed, however.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  eval `dircolors`


1. dircolors -p > foo
2. eval `dircolors foo`

Actual results:

Error message  Unknown colorls variable `do'.

Other colors are changed.

Expected results:

Colors are reset with no output to terminal.

Additional info:

The color database in /etc/DIR_COLORS does not include the DOOR entry.  (And
also doesn't really match the output from ``dircolors -p'' at all.)

Seems to work fine in the coreutils in rawhide.
