Description Robin Green 2005-05-23 21:52:54 UTC
Description of problem:
I was trying to build a package from jpackage, and rpmbuild bailed out with
"error: Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:" and gave the path of a
symlink. However, the symlink should have been matched by a wildcard in the
%files section. I manually expanded the wildcard, built again, and got the same
error. I have attached a reduced test case.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download attached file testcase.spec
2. rpmbuild -bb testcase.spec
Actual results:

Upgraded rpm-libs to 4.4.1-20 and now I can't reproduce this bug. Marking as
