Bug Description

Binary package hint: coreutils

Very easy to reproduce here:

(0)hazel:~/research/oximetro/oxigit/regression_tests% echo $LANG
en_GB.UTF-8

(0)hazel:~/research/oximetro/oxigit/regression_tests% dd if=fake_measure.rwc of=fake340.rwc count=40000
683+1 records in
683+1 records out
zsh: 10667 segmentation fault dd if=fake_measure.rwc of=fake340.rwc count=40000

but:

(139)hazel:~/research/oximetro/oxigit/regression_tests% LANG=C dd if=fake_measure.rwc of=fake340.rwc count=40000
683+1 records in
683+1 records out
349760 bytes (350 kB) copied, 0.003817 seconds, 91.6 MB/s

it seems a bug in the translation of the last message.

Ok, sorry for the noise. I have searched the bug before, but "dd" gave too much results, and "dd LANG" no one.

OTOH, it would be nice to add a "package" filtering to

https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+bugs?advanced=1

I know it is possible to arrive to a filtering like that, but it is not evident from the "report a bug" main page. So I searched it, and not found, and filed a new bug.

Will try more in the future, but I really think that "advanced search" on the launchpad should have the possibility to get a bit more "advanced"...
