Description enrico.scholz 1999-01-28 01:12:18 UTC
Some translations and their origin differs in length. So in
makeinfo.c space for the translation will be allocated but
the origin ("-Footnotes") is used.

This is fixed in later texinfo (>=3.12c) but the delivered
one contains this bug.

Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-01-28 01:53:59 UTC
A new texinfo package should appear in the next rawhide

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1999-01-28 01:54:59 UTC
*** Bug 982 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Bug #981 affects not only texinfo, but all packages using
their own makeinfo (e.g. gdb)
