But how does/can it happen?
Authored by: geoffsaulnier on Nov 23, '00 08:05:03AM

Great tips, guys, but I have a question:

How can a file, owned by root and 755 in
my /bin directory, also owned by root and
755, get trashed?????

Now, that is really weird...

Yes, I think that definitely qualifies it as a
bug! I reported it to Apple when it
happened to me.

Especially odd is that nothing had
seemed to crash or otherwise go wrong
when it happened.

-rob.

Mmmm - me too, although I hadn't figured
out that there was a dead binary... I just
told them it was broken and then
reinstalled, which went fine.

I kinda wich that they would at least
acknowledge the feedback. I have this
horrible suspicion of it just being
feedback > /dev/null ;-)
