That's interesting.  It appears that fstatat (AT_FDCWD, ...)  works
only if the last argument is 1.  Can you reproduce the problem with
the following little test program?

  #include <fcntl.h>
  #include <sys/stat.h>

  main (void)
    struct stat a;
    if (fstatat (AT_FDCWD, ".", &a, 0) != 0)
      return 1;
    return 0;

If my guess is right, this returns nonzero exit status, which is a bug.

If my guess is wrong, perhaps you can change the test to make it
"right", by replacing "." with the name of some other file in the
working directory, or by compiling with -D_LARGE_FILES, or by doing
both at the same time.
