Description Vlado Potisk 2003-06-04 06:38:51 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
the man page for the 'cdrecord' command is truncated,
the output stops in the middle of the text.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man cdrecord | wc -l

Actual Results:  wc reports 756 lines of text and an error message occurs:
iconv: illegal input sequence at position 37354

Expected Results:  The number 1252 is expected, this happens to be
the number of lines in cdrecord man page on my RH9 installation

Additional info:
user root has no problem, so this bug might
be locale-dependent. My $LANG is sk_SK, root's
$LANG is en_US.UTF-8.
Comment 1 Eido Inoue 2003-06-04 16:42:51 EDT
most likely an illegal UTF-8 sequence inside of the man page.
Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2003-08-08 12:37:58 EDT
fixed in 1.58 in rawhide
