coreutils-8.14, "rm -r" fails with EBADF

Hi folks


I got coreutils-8.9, 8.13 and 8.14 to compile for my platform, and most of the utilities work, but as soon as it comes to recurring thru the file system some utils fail, e.g.:


~/coreutils-8.14/src $ ./rm -R /tmp/foo

./rm: traversal failed: `/tmp/foo': Bad file descriptor

~/coreutils-8.14/src $ ./rm -r /tmp/foo

./rm: traversal failed: `/tmp/foo': Bad file descriptor

~/coreutils-8.14/src $


‘./ls –R /tmp/foo’ does work though:

~/coreutils-8.14/src $ ./ls -lr /tmp/foo

total 0

Does this ring a bell with one of you?

I don’t understand why one fails but the other works, and can’t seem to fine the place where it goes wrong.

It seems to happen somewhere deep in gnulib, but I’m not really sure.


Bye, Jojo
