Description Richard Keech 1999-08-23 05:45:13 UTC
restore works OK except when adding
entries to the extraction lisk which require
directories to be created at multiple levels.
restore -ivf $TAPE
restore> cd kernel/updates
restore> add file
bad name to addentry ../kernel/updates
abort ? [yn] y
it is as if restore is calling mkdir rather
than mkdir -p when creating directories.

should be fixed in the current (6.2) release.
