I'm using coreutils-8.25-2 on a Parabola GNU/Linux-libre system.
I think I found a bug with the "sha1sum" command.

Steps to reproduce:
1) wget https://dumps.wikimedia.org/enwikisource/20161020/enwikisource-
2) wget https://dumps.wikimedia.org/enwikisource/20161020/enwikisource-
3) sha1sum -c enwikisource-20161020-sha1sums.txt --ignore-missing

sha1sum: enwikisource-20161020-sha1sums.txt: no file was verified

Expected result:
enwikisource-20161020-pages-articles.xml.bz2: OK

Ouch that is a bug, triggered when --ignore-missing is used
with checksums that start with 00....
The attached should fix it up.
