Date: April 6th, 2004

Affected versions: 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

The version of ls bundled with fileutils and, in later versions of Mandrakelinux, coreutils would segfault on listing directories with a large number of files in them, on the amd64 platform.

The updated packages correct the problem.
