I'm a bit confused.
The issue as reported seems to be fixed with this change done last month:
I.E. I reverted that change and I can reproduce the issue.

However in the bug report you're seeing the issue with coreutils-7.1
which should have the fix. Also Jim checked that the original textutils
had this issue but you say coreutils-5 did not?
