Re: Does kernel 2.1..86 fix the chown/lchown problem?

   >From the 2.1.81 patch overview:

     * lchown syscall added.

   >From the 2.1.86 patch overview:

     * chown and lchown syscalls swapped. 

   Does this swap change the default semantics back to what programs
   expect, or should I still expect dpkg, etc. problems?

Yes, it will fix all the semantics problems, that was the rationale
for the swap as discussed on linux-kernel.
