The release notes say 100999-33.  There is a patch 101318-04
for 2.3.  I don't think the lofs bug has been fixed, though.

(If you check the lofs patch for 5.2, you'll find they
added a mutex in one of the lofs .h files.  It isn't there
in 2.3, so I think the fix is not in there yet).



1. 4 bugs that weren't fixed in Solaris 2.3

Here is a list of the 4 bugs that I reported under Solaris 2.1, none of
which are fixed on the Solaris 2.3 FCS CD-ROM which I just installed.

I guess this is what Sun means in their advertisements when they talk
about "Sun Quality".

The 4 Bugs:

1.  "spell /usr/dict/words | wc -l" doesn't return "0".
2.  If $HOSTNAME has 3 aliases, "ypcat hosts | egrep $HOSTNAME | wc -l" returns
        "4".  It returns "1" on SunOS 4.x.x.
3.  look is broken, outputs:
        ld.so.1: look: fatal: libucb.so.1: can't open file: errno=2
4.      gethostbyname() should return the FQDN in hostent->h_name, but instead
        returns the strcpy() of what gethostbyname() was sent.


P.S.  The company I work for has a support contract with Sun and I am
one of the "official points of contact" that is allowed to submit
