You seem to be missing the point I was making though.  This is not a bug in "patched Coreutils" (i.e taking coreutils upstream + Fedora's i18n patch which is what we base our patch off of).  It's a bug in LFS' patched coreutils because when I created the 7.4 version of the patch I introduced this bug when trying to resolve conflicts occurring from the application of the 7.3 version of that patch to 7.4.  So, don't bother complaining to Herbert as it's not his problem.  Nor should you complain to the maintainer of the i18n patch at Fedora where we base our work off of.  This is solely an LFS issue and is resolved with the coreutils-7.5-i18n-2.patch.

If I get some time, I may go back and produce a coreutils-7.4-i18n-2.patch and publish an errata for the book.  Otherwise, can I suggest that you either try the 7.5 version against 7.4 or upgrade your Coreutils to 7.5 with the 2nd version of the patch or to 7.6.
