This causes issues with utilities, for example the "shadow" utilities (useradd/mod, groupmod, etc.) which assume this behaviour (which at least gnu libc exhibits) and leads to groups having a small limit on the number of members. The attached patch, against 1.1.16, corrects this. Cheers, Rudolph Content of type "text/html" skipped View attachment "1100-getX-errno.patch" of type "text/x-patch" (1120 bytes)
