System: NetBSD schleppo.sun.universe 1.4.1 NetBSD 1.4.1 (SCHLEPPO) #1: Fri Feb 4 20:36:41 CET 2000 salb@schleppo.sun.universe:/products/NetBSD/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/SCHLEPPO i386

I have an 1.4.2 kernel running, but the tools are 1.4.1!

	ar dumps core (signal 11), if I create an archive of text
	files. Even if I add the option S.

   Could someone verify that this didn't ocure in the upcomming
   1.4.3 and 1.5 version?

Run the folloing commands.

echo "File1" > f1
ar -cq test.a f1
rm test.a
ar -Scq test.a f1

	Sorry none so fare.
