I have lokid in the list of patches, and can find no reference to this
problem. I am sure it must be an obvious thing, since I refuse to
beleive that nobody else has noticed it.

I am running 2.3 on a sparc1

Also -

I seem to be unable to find some of the patches on sunsolve1.sun.com -
are there any other sites I can try (well, the re are, but where are
they? )

Thanks in advance

There are three ways to fix it:
1) Buy a source license from Sun, and fix the bug. (This is what I did when
my university bought a source license.)
2) Upgrade to Solaris 2.4 when it is released (Dec 16).
3) Get Casper Dik's patched finger executable from
        ftp.fwi.uva.nl:/pub/comp/solaris

1. SOLUTION: finger only displaying one line of .plan

Hi.

I couple days ago, I asked what to do with the *broken* solaris
2.3 finger.  Seems that the 2.2 version works as expected.  So
just replace the 2.3 version with the 2.2 one.
