According to address@hidden on 7/24/2008 1:14 AM:
| Sorry for the confusion of my first question.
| In fact someone in my company report me a bug concerning the shell
| command "ls".
| I was just asking you if someone already reported you a bug about "ls".

Yes, there have been ls bugs reported in the past; most recently with the
behavior of whether 'ls -i' should work around kernel bugs in readdir(2).
~ But we don't know if the problem your co-worker mentioned to you has been
reported unless you report it, or even if what you are seeing is really a
bug or expected behavior.

| If so, could you give me some details please ?

We are asking the same question of you.

But when it comes to finding prior bug reports, search the mailing list
archives: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-coreutils/

| This is just curiosity for now. I ll investigate later in order to know

| Thank you for your answer.

A word of advice - you've now consumed our time with two content-free
questions, which tends to reduce your credibility.  You could have saved a
lot of time by reporting the actual behavior that you thought was a bug,
even if it was a duplicate report.  Or, by searching the archives instead
of sending content-free questions, you may have been able to answer your
question in the first place.  We try to be helpful on this list, but we
can only do as much as your questions permit.
