Re: file corruption

The "file corruption" problem seems to be a problem with re(4):

I built a release with code from Fri Feb 17 04:31:34 2017 +0000

Two rounds of

cvs co -D2017. src

both gave "corrupted files". (This rules out "recent" changes.)

The "corruption" is that they contain chunks of cvs protocol, such as the
excerpt from src/external/gpl3/gcc/dist/gcc/cp/ChangeLog-2000:

2000-01-28  Nathan Sidwell  <>

(with ip4csum etc enabled)

I tried a USB wireless dongle, and the same cvs checkout over urtwm0
appears to be fine. (No change of kernel, no reboot.)


(much happier that ffs is blameless)
