Follow-up Comment #18, bug #15919 (project make):

Sorry J David Bryan, as you say there is no obvious way to edit comments once
they have been submitted. I am just very frustrated with the current lack of
progress with GNU make, and you caught me on a bad day.

Looking over my current sources I see I have updated my sources since my
patch. If you email me directly (savannah at icarus freeuk com)I will send
you an updated patch which is actually the fix to your problem, it is not the
fix to 16051.

Paul, it would be nice to believe you. However you released 3.81 without
testing bug 3330 <https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?3330>. If you had done this
testing you would have found this bug before releasing 3.81.

Personally I consider this bug to be a "release critical" bug, by which I
mean it has to be fixed before a release is made, and just fixing this bug is
a reason for creating a new release. It takes a perfectly valid input, and
causes make to enter an infinite loop. If "cat" had a bug so that if it was
given a filename with "dog" in it it went into an infinite loop then people
would expect a fix faster than a year, let alone 4 years.

Do you agree Paul?
