mklist bug?


Idiot test report #10

	Cooled down a little.  Now a muggy 25c, better than muggy 30c.

Discovered that main takes up 122110k extra on slink1 & slink2 than in the
mirror.  A total of 2252 packages.  Total space taken on the discs is
863206790 bytes.  I have tracked the problem down to mklist.  I was using
unmodified 1.06.  The same problem occures with 1.04.  I didnt have this
problem with 0.96 (?) Unfortunately I dont have any versions before 1.04.
Investigating further.

The good news.  A bug that is a feature.  The sysmlinks are retained in
slink3-4 using the "flatten" option.  These discs can then be burnt using
the patched mkhybrid.
