Yes, of course! It didn't cross my mind. But now when you mentioned
it I recalled that such warning was even stated in stripping section
of Chapter 6.
However I'm a bit surprised that the (already stripped) bash crashed
again when I tried to strip it once more while it was running. And I
tested (md5 sums) that no binaries or library files were changed during
this stripping. (Well, the static libraries were changed but as I found
with cmp the only change was the date of creation of object files;
moreover it shoudn't depend on the static libs.) However this is not too
important for me now. I was only afraid that I had some mess in my
tools. Thanks for your advice.
