Re: [coreutils] Bug in du with -x flag?

Greetings, Dave Korn!

     Hi list,
   I always used to use du with the -cxhs options, but since updating to the
latest (8.15-1) version there appears to be a problem caused by -x:
$ ls -la
total 392188
drwxr-xr-x+ 1 DKAdmin None         0 Apr  6 00:35 .
drwxr-xr-x+ 1 DKAdmin None         0 Apr  3 05:58 ..
drwxr-xr-x+ 1 DKAdmin None         0 Apr  3 16:28 gcc4
-rw-r--r--  1 DKAdmin None 401599997 Apr  6 00:43 gcc472-2-dist.tar.bz2

$ du -xh gcc472-2-dist.tar.bz2

$ du -h gcc472-2-dist.tar.bz2
383M    gcc472-2-dist.tar.bz2

   Unless I'm misunderstanding it badly, -x shouldn't make any difference when
counting a real file in the current directory.  I wonder if it could have
perhaps been introduced by the recent related bugfix that I read about in
   du -x no longer counts root directories of other file systems.
   [bug introduced in coreutils-5.1.0]
or perhaps some interaction between that and Cygwin's path conversion code?
401599997/1024/1024 = 382.985Mb
Seems proper to me.
The problem is not the size reported by du -h... it's that du -x doesn't list the file at all.
