Thanks for reporting that Bob.
I've just confirmed that neither address@hidden
nor address@hidden works.
Would someone please fix that?

If it's hard or time-consuming to make it so address@hidden
works, would you please at least make it an alias to address@hidden
coreutils-4.5.1 has been out for 2 weeks (since 1 Sept), and already,
the lack of a working bug-reporting address has caused several users
(that I know of) to be put off.  In addition, that package just
made it (sort of) into Debian's unstable last night.

If necessary, I can even make a 4.5.2 release that changes the
bug-reporting to be address@hidden, but I'd really rather
avoid that.

Please let me know.
