I hit it with coreutils `yes ""` on arm. We've had these sorts of bugs in the past. Wouldn't it be wise to push out a new release? Something like musl-184.108.40.206? I can deal with applying the patch but pushing out a another release signals to the community that there is an update. Just thought. -- Anthony G. Basile, Ph. D.
