It's spelled ``bug''. This has been reported before and I'm shure I've
uploaded the apropriate fixes in form of new patch sets, source and binary

Easy, isn't it?

I've fixed *shitloads* of bugs since .72, not too mention a dramatic increase
in performance. You're right, filesystems on Indys (not other MIPS boxes)
had the problem of a certain ``volatilibility'', but that's gone for me.
If somebody still sees fs corruption on Indys running 2.1.91, please report.

Strace is working. See the CVS.
There is no glibc 2.0.7.
