By that time it has already run 'sum' on the binary file and got
the right answer.  My guess would be a difference between the
HP-UX and Linux version of 'wc' when it comes to processing
binary files.  If so, then the resulting C7120023.frm is probably
fine.  Might be nice if someone else confirmed that before you
trash your machine though ;-)
