I reproduced this, but it wasn't spot "^M SpotFunctio", it was more like "^M
<random binary here>".

It was there since install on a brand new FC4 machine.

I believe this is related to bug 170895, as I also experience this and it also
involves damage to fstab.

Comment 2 Christian Iseli 2007-01-20 00:46:30 UTC
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?


Comment 3 Oliver Cole 2007-01-20 11:11:47 UTC
Have been unable to reproduce since on FC4, not currently upgrading original box.

Comment 4 petrosyan 2008-02-17 06:03:48 UTC
Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
