*** Bug 2672 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

cd ~ or any other use of ~ for home directory results in
error "Error performing glob".  I couldn't locate any config
info for adjusting this, and it used to work in 5.1.

Comment 2 Jay Turner 1999-05-19 17:00:59 UTC
Confirmed in wu-ftpd-2.4.2vr17-3 (from 6.0)

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-08 12:58:59 UTC
Fixed in wu-ftpd-2.5.0 errata. Thanks for the report.

Comment 4 Derek Tattersall 1999-06-08 14:38:59 UTC
